Movie review: Pixar's 'Coco' sings a high-spirited but sometimes faltering tune

Can a person honor his family and pursue his dreams? That is the question at the heart of "Coco," a whimsical and high-spirited romp through the underworld from Pixar Animation Studios. The story's 12-year-old protagonist, Miguel Rivera, is an aspiring guitarist with a song in his heart and stardom on his mind. But to realize his destiny he must defy the wishes of his close-knit Mexican family, which, for reasons stemming from a long-ago ancestral scandal, has forbidden him from enjoying or pursuing music.
