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!
