Coco shows how forgiveness and acceptance can bring healing, not just to one person, but to generations.

Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright talk about intergenerational trauma, grief and loss, and what it takes to heal relationships as seen in Pixar’s Coco. They also talk about feeling like you don’t fit in, family and tradition, the incredible animation, and yes, they both shed some tears. Of course. It’s Pixar. Don’t try to tell us you don’t cry too when Miguel and Mama Coco sing "Remember Me" at the end of the movie.
