As many of you will already know, Wes Anderson is one of my all time favourite directors. If I was forced to pick my top ten favourite films there would be at least two of his in there (which two changes on a day to day basis!) So when I heard he had a new movie coming out I was obviously very excited. And I was not disappointed.
Moonrise Kingdom was the perfect Wes Anderson movie. Even if I had heard nothing about it beforehand, and didn't know who the director was, I would have recognised his work in the details, the camera angles, the casting, the humour. I cannot rave about this film enough - the more I think about it, the more I wish I could just climb into the screen and live there.
If you haven't already seen it then I would highly recommend you watch it - visually it is absolutely stunning and, even if you're not a fan of Wes Anderson, I am sure most people will be unable to resist such a beautiful and charming film. Have any of you watched it yet? If so, what did you think?
