A retired salesman floats away in his balloon-powered house with a young adventurer in Pixar’s beloved tale of intergenerational friendship.

Up

Pete Docter | US | 96

Seeking to escape the specter of a conventional life in a retirement home after a new housing development company pushes him out, and yearning for the dream trip he and his late wife always wanted to take, retired widower Carl takes to the sky by tying thousands of helium balloons to his house. But an unexpected stowaway has joined him on his solitary journey. Pixar’s beloved animated tale of intergenerational friendship is among the studio’s most moving works, a tear-jerking adventure of discovery and love that received two Oscars, including Best Animated Feature of the Year.
