“The Mitchells vs. the Machines” will be released on Digital, Blu-Ray and DVD on Tuesday, December 14th. If you somehow missed this movie, which was released in select theaters and on Netflix earlier this year, then you simply must see it!
This animated comedy is about an everyday family’s attempt to connect with one another. When Katie Mitchell (voiced by Abbi Jacobson), a creative outsider, is accepted into the film school of her dreams, her plans to meet “her people” at college are upended when her nature-loving dad Rick (voiced by Danny McBride) determines the whole family should drive Katie to school together and bond as a family one last time.
An old school father and his plugged-in, filmmaker daughter struggle to relate as their family embarks on a road trip to her new college. Their drive is interrupted by a machine apocalypse that threatens to tear these unlikely heroes apart unless they can find a way to join forces and save humanity.
As a parent of a teen, I can empathize with the parents in this animated film. With everyone connected to their screens, it can be a challenge sometimes to have a face-to-face conversation with our loved ones.
