Pixar movie mirrors Edith’s story

My Ballard reader Josh sent us an email about the upcoming Pixar movie “Up” which seems to loosely mirror the Edith Macefield story.

Well, at least in the beginning. Up is about a 78-year-old man who feels trapped in his home as it’s surrounded by the big city. That is, until an 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell gives him a new lease on life, and they manage to tie a bunch a balloons to the house and float away to big adventures.
