While the movie Elemental has struggled to find its footing, I found this Disney/Pixar outing a joy to watch. It was touching to show an immigrant’s struggle to find their place in a new land only to see their child struggle. They captured the essence of the push and pull between parents and their children.
So, what is Elemental? Elemental is set in the fictional Elemental City. There, fire, water, land, and air residents come together and live. It’s a strange city as not all the residents, namely fire residents, can safely interact with one another.
Ember (Leah Lewis) is the daughter of fire residents Bernie (Ronnie Del Carmen) and Cinder (Shila Ommi). She has a fierce temper, often exploding (literally) when she becomes upset.
