Brave (Ribelle - The Brave)

Starring Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and Robbie Coltrane.
Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In Brave, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late.

Nonetheless he packs the family up and they head to Spain. While on vacation with his family, Will discovers that his father is actually working as a CIA agent, one who's gotten himself into serious trouble. When the rest of his family disappears - kidnapped by the same shady people who are after his father - Will is thrust into a grand government conspiracy that puts all of their lives in danger. With the authorities framing him for murder and the Embassy refusing to offer any help, Will goes on the run, hoping to find his family, elude capture and find the object the kidnappers are after: an important briefcase, whose contents are unknown.
