Storyline

A fable of a young boy who is coming of age in the most peculiar of circumstances. Tonight is the very first time his Papa and Grandpa are taking him to work. In an old wooden boat they row far out to sea, and with no land in sight, they stop and wait. A big surprise awaits the little boy as he discovers his family's most unusual line of work. Should he follow the example of his Papa, or his Grandpa? Will he be able to find his own way in the midst of their conflicting opinions and timeworn traditions? Written by Anonymous

The Pixar short La Luna is a sight for the ages
26 June 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Oscar-nominated Pixar computer animated short before the feature Brave with my movie theatre-working friend. He didn't know about this showing before the feature and was a little confused when it ended. I, however, knew about it but I didn't know what to expect. I mean, there's a young boy, his father, and his grandfather and they're on this boat and the moon is full...I'll stop there and just say that what happens after that is so wonderful and awe-inspiring and just such a sight to see that I don't want to reveal too much. Just that if you have an active imagination, you really shouldn't miss La Luna. I mean, don't expect any loud laughs but expect to maybe chuckle a bit at some of the way the three characters interact with each other. So, yeah, that's a recommendation.
