There's already been some blogger buzz about Moonrise Kingdom, so I'll just add to it! I loved this film, it was my first Wes Anderson flick so I really had no idea what to expect. I didn't know anything about the movie before going in. Do you all do that often? I feel like that rarely ever happens to me because I have usually already seen a trailer or read a plot summary, most likely both. It's sort of thrilling though to go in blind.

This quirky love story is charming and despite its darker humor, manages to leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling. Apart from the plot and the characters, I was really most fascinated by the cinematography. Everything is painstakingly chosen- no detail forgotten, the color palette of the wardrobe and the set, the symmetry of the camera shots and pans. Put together a little polyvore with some Moonrise Kingdom-inspired, fall-geared things. I already can't wait for my favorite season to start!

Oh, how exciting, your first Wes Anderson movie! Now you gotta watch them all! :) The Royal Tenenbaums is my favorite followed closely by Rushmore. I just love, love, love his cinematography and attention to detail as well. The special features of The Royal Tenebaums is SO good, especially if you love all that detail.

Love the polyvore! And I also can't wait for fall to get here!

I loved this movie and it's so true what you wrote about it! What a lovely little piece for inspiration, but as a Wes Anderson addict, I'll have to advise you to go and watch them all right now because this isn't even close to his best. Rushmore is my personal favorite, but they're all charming in their own ways.

Man, I cried in this movie's teaser!! I cannot wait to watch it sometime, I'm not sure whether it is showing in South Africa yet. Maybe no.

Very cute post you did here!
