The Mitchells vs. The Machines

The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★★½

The Mitchells vs. the Machines mixes a technology apocalypse with a sweet family adventure that takes advantage of the animation medium and the imagination of a bright-eyed aspiring filmmaker in its wonderfully charming lead Katie Mitchell. A "family is everything" narrative sounds cheesy and cliche, but the creativity on display, from surprisingly non-cringe internet humor to a childlike wonder that's been missing from many family films as of late, I feel like I'll always come back to this as a reminder of how messy and beautiful my own family is.
