I watched 'Kubo and the Two Strings' with my five-year old, and when it ended I was thoroughly confused.
Very early in the movie, we learn that Kubo is blind in one eye.
Why is this crucial to the plot? Is it symbolic of something?
I'm asking because I do not think that this plot decision was made without cost. I think this made the movie seem much more violent. It matters to me because I thought this movie was made for young kids.
