Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions — Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
Join us on Monday, June 17th at 6:00 pm at Ragtag Cinema. Tickets will go on sale at the Ragtag Cinema Box Office and at ragtagcinema.org on the day of the show only.
Meet the Panelists!
Dr. Ashley Groh's research focuses on the significance of children's early relationships with primary caregivers for social and emotional development across the lifespan. The goals of her research lie in understanding the contribution of early parent-child relationships to developmental adaptation in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood; the developmental processes through which such experiences exert an organizing force on development; and the mechanisms by which adversity within early parent-child relationships can be overcome.
Nicole Campione-Barr is an Associate Professor of Developmental Psychology at the University of Missouri. Her research explores the quality of family relationships during adolescence and their impact on teens' mental health and well-being. In addition to teaching about and researching adolescent development, she also studies these issues up-close as the mother of 10 and 15-year-old boys.
