Moonrise Kingdom

No spoilers, I think.

I caught a showing of Wes Anderson’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom’. “Its the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

What a wonderful movie. I was caught off guard. What Boy Scout nerd wouldn’t be taken by this film, even two decades plus removed from the scouts?

I liked the Wes Anderson-isms – the long pregnant pauses, the animation, the scene construction, the characters, the use of sound and music. The 12-year-old me I imperfectly archive reveled in this film.

See this movie.
