When Blu, a baby blue macaw living in Brazil, was captured by traders and smuggled into the US, a little girl named Linda decided to take care of him, and it took them to grow up. Since Blu had been with Linda since childhood, he unfortunately did not learn to fly. When an ornithologist named Tulio finds Blu and tells Linda that he's the last of his kind, Tulio decided to bring Blu to Brazil to breed with a female macaw called Jewel. But during the night Blu was re-captured along with Jewel and has to find his way back to Linda while trying to overcome his fear to learn how to fly with Jewel and a toucan, Rafael.
Rio is one of my favorite movies directed by Carlos Saldanha. It's one of these Animation movies which you will remember for a long time, Rio is original and has it's own style. Rio is kind of surprise of 2011, the rest of movies made in United States wasn't as successful as this one. I couldn't forget about the great cast, Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg really did their work perfectly. The movie was directed by Carlos Saldanha. Enjoy watching, you can also filter all movies to show only movie directed by Carlos Saldanha or starring only Anne Hathaway, just click on the names.
