Every once in a while, I come across something I love so much, I just have to share. Disney's Paperman is one of those things. The film, directed by John Kahrs, is a refreshing step back from princesses and flashy animation. The nostalgic hand-drawn lines, coupled with a heartwarming story and beautiful music, help to make it so wonderful.
It is no surprise to me that the 6-minute black-and-white love story set in 1940s Manhattan is now in contention for an Oscar for best digital short.
To me, Paperman is more than a love story. It is about missed connections, the things we pass by in our daily hustle and bustle, and breaking away from the mundane. It is also about following our hearts, and trusting that somehow we will be guided in the right direction.
