If I could vote in the Oscars…

…here’s my pick for picture of the year.

There is more truth, pain, joy, poetry and poignancy in this five minute clip than in any other I can imagine.  And I love that the final moment of the trilogy ends the way the first movie began, with a shot of an impossibly beautiful sky, and the promise of dreams that stretch to infinity (and, yes, beyond.)

Here it is again, the conclusion of “Toy Story 3.”  Tissues required.

  4. My son was going off to college the same time as Andy…this movie broke my heart!
