Dec 29, 2021 500

Luca, the children's movie set on the Italian riviera, is nominated for a Golden Globe in the best animated film category, ahead of the 9 January award ceremony in Los Angeles. Produced by Pixar and distributed by Disney, the coming-of-age fantasy tells the story of Luca, a young boy experiencing "an unforgettable summer" full of "gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides" with his best friend Alberto.
