Do you have a heart of steel? I think you must in order to get through Disney/Pixar's UP without shedding quite a few tears. It's truly a beautiful love story and within the first few minutes of the movie, it's incredibly apparent that Carl and Ellie Fredricksen make the perfect pair.
Carl and Ellie met as children and shared their love for adventure and dreams of a place called Paradise Falls. They fell in love, got married and purchased their dream home together. They were partners in every sense of the word. I think the reason why I love Carl and Ellie so much is that they didn't have your typical "picture perfect" love story. They had their share of heartache and they picked each other up. They had dreams of one day visiting Paradise Falls, but those dreams got put on the back burner as life got in the way.
Not everything is a fairytale in life, but when you devote your life to the ones you love you can live a complete life, like Mr. Fredricksen.
At the point where it looked like Mr. Fredricksen had to give up, Ellie inspired him one more time. She gave him the will to stop his quest by placing a note for him at the right place at the right time. In her Adventure Book, she left him a note encouraging him to find a new adventure after she was gone - a truly selfless, loving action.
I hope you agree that Carl and Ellie are the perfect pair - and that their love story inspires you for years to come!
