Pixar and Disney really ought to merge with Kleenex ... they just know how to get you right in the feels! Being Asian and the mom of two boys this got me ... a very well done short showing what it's like when your child grows up and how hard it is to let go.

Great animated short, this is Pixar at its best. I really enjoyed it, and so will you.
'BAO': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)
Another Pixar computer-animated short film, which plays before 'INCREDIBLES 2' in theaters. This one tells the story of a lonely Chinese mother, who suffers from 'empty nest syndrome', and then finds a homemade dumpling, that she made, which comes to life and gives her another chance to be a mother. Of course what's fun at first also grows older, and grows away once again (just like a child). The short is a modern reimagining of the classic folktale 'The Gingerbread Man'. It's about 8-minutes long, and it was directed by Domee Shi (the first woman to direct a Pixar short). I found it to be charming and refreshingly odd. It's also (of course) beautifully animated, and the music (by Toby Chu) is equally beautiful as well. I didn't feel the emotion of it quite as much as a lot of other Pixar shorts though (or as much as it seemed like the filmmakers wanted me to). It is an enjoyable and well made little short film still though.
