The Curt Critic in the news: This recent Wisconsin State Journal article is validation that Liz Zélandais' quest to see all 53 Oscar-nominated films for 2013 is a fascinating enterprise worthy of public interest, rather than merely nuts.

Brave - 2013 Oscar Nominee for Best Animated Feature Film

"A lady does not place her weapon on the table." 
-Queen Elinor

With Pixar's signature truer-than-life animation, Brave combines legend, family, fairy tale, and coming of age to offer a beautifully rendered and thought-provoking adventure.

When the fiery Princess Merida's parents invite the first-born sons of neighboring clans to vie for her hand, she is outraged. A spell to change her mother backfires, and the relationship they forge as they work together to un-do the potentially fatal misfortune is the heart of the movie.

Even with a message, Brave doesn't resort to pomp and is highlighted with sparkling humor.
