Moonrise Kingdom: It’s So Easy to Fall In Love

<i>Moonrise Kingdom</i>: It’s So Easy to Fall In Love

The hills of New England are alive with the sound of young love and Hank Williams music in Moonrise Kingdom, a sweet, charming and altogether delightful bit of whimsy from writer/director Wes Anderson. Fair warning: If you're one of those folks who hopped off the Anderson bandwagon after The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou having grown somewhat weary of his familiar visual bag of tricks and poker-faced sense of humor, this movie may still not tempt you back into the fold given that it perpetuates all of his signature stylistic quirks rather than reinvents them. That's your loss though, as Moonrise is one of the director's most skillfully assembled movies and an example of how welcome his unique voice is on the contemporary cinematic landscape.
