Trolls - 2016
Age-appropriateness: mildly scary scenes where trolls are "eaten"
Overview: After the Bergens invade Troll Village, Poppy, the happiest Troll ever born, and the curmudgeonly Branch set off on a journey to rescue her friends. The theme woven throughout the entire film is happiness. This movie does a great job in showing the variations of happiness in characters and its affects on their lives. We see some who think they’ll never be happy, others who are way too happy, and some who used to be happy but are no longer happy. The primary motivation for many characters is to achieve and maintain happiness.
Themes: happiness, sadness, emotions, friendship, bullying, family, death, grieving, isolation, loneliness, authenticity
