Book of Life DVD - 2014 delightful animated film directed by Jorge Gutiérrez. Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart, embarks on an adventure that spans three fantastic worlds where he must face his greatest fears. The film tells the story of Manolo, a soulful and poetic young man hopelessly in love with the beautiful Maria. The only problem is that the dashing, preening Joaquin is in love with her too. To add to this, the gods La Muerte (made of sugar candy) and Xibalba (made of tar) are wagering on who gets the girl (and Maria will have none of it!). From there begins a story that will take our heroes to the Land of the Remembered, the Land of the Forgotten, and everything in between. They'll face down a 200 foot bull, a conniving god, a giant boulder of a bandit, and death itself. And yes (spoiler alert), there's a happy ending. In English, Spanish or French with subtitles in French or Spanish. Includes a regular dvd and a blu-ray dvd. Rated PG for mild action, rude humor, some thematic elements and brief scary images.
