Therapist Reacts to BRAVE

From Cinema Therapy.

Do you ever feel like you’re in a conversation but just talking right past each other? Merida and her mother frequently complain that the other just. won’t. listen. At the start of the movie, their relationship is full of misunderstandings because they want to be understood, but don’t try to understand.

Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright dissect the mother-daughter relationship in Pixar’s Brave – from the issues that plague their relationship at the start, to the ways they seek reconciliation throughout the film, and of course the incredible animation in this film. (You might also get to hear their attempts at a Scottish brogue.)
