A Wes Anderson film is like the jellybean amongst the sour warheads. Every one of his movies is a sweet treat that stimulates the imagination and reveals the child in us. It's impossible to rank his work in terms of "best" and its even difficult to nail down a favourite and such a dilemma is a credit to his genius. Moonrise Kingdom is his latest movie that tells the story of two 12 year old outcasts who run away from home to pursue a love for one another. Their story takes place in 1965 on a small Island amongst a boy scout troupe. Anderson has encapsulated the sense of adventure that being a child of the 60s was all about and he skilfully keeps his own quirky sense of wonder and imagination. As usual the cast is brilliant and the cinematography is wonderful. I am drawn to family friendly movies that challenge children with themes and concepts and Moonrise Kingdom doesn't disappoint. Adolescent turmoils are embraced and the movie dares kids to embrace difficulties and overcome them. Oh and there's not enough movies about the Scouts in my opinion LOL. I love them and this one ranks right up there with "Follow Me, Boys" as one of the best (granted, there's not many).
