Wes Anderson is Right Behind You

Listen...I know it has been a dizzying year and you are still coming off the high from The Avengers while awaiting Dark Knight Rises, Amazing Spider-Man and THE HOBBIT....but all this time, Wes Anderson has been standing right behind you, patiently waiting to show you his new film as you giggle snort about Hulk smashing Loki. Fine...fine...you love Wes and NOW that you know his latest film Moonrise Kingdom is in theaters, you will seek out the nearest indie theater and commence dorky grin #213 for the allotted period of time. Yes? Some of you still look confused and are embarrassed to say you didn't even know Wes had a new movie dropping. Never fear. We'll have you up to speed in minutes.

Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore -- and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl's parents. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the boy and girl AKA best cast ever & thank you.

In love, yes? In "select" theaters now means we have to seek out this movie with great vigor...so good luck with that...but now you've seen enough of the movie that you can make up the rest in your mind if you live too far. I expect to see crayon depictions of your favorite scenes on your facebooks. Either way, happy hunting.
