Moonrise Kingdom

It isn't playing in all movie theatres, but if you find one near you, I'd recommend going to see Moonrise Kingdom.  It is classic Wes Anderson, the director of films such as Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Darjeeling Limited, and Fantastic Mr. Fox

The story takes place in a north-eastern town in the 1960s with many big name actors like Bill Murray, Ed Norton, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, and of course, Jason Schwartzman.  Everyone does a superb job in their individually unique roles.

And we are introduced to some new-comers to the movie scene with the main characters played by Kara Hayward and Jared Gilman.  Remember those names because they look to have a promising future to come in Hollywood.

It's an adorable story of two young lovers, lost and alone in their worlds, looking to find comfort in one another.  You can't help but love it...
