On Tuesday night, I saw Moonrise Kingdom.
It was one of the cutest movies I've ever seen.
Y'know what's in that basket? A kitten.
I've gotta admit, I spent a lot of the movie worrying about something happening to that kitten.
I blame The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Which I hated.
But this post isn't about a movie I hated.
It's about a movie I loved.
One of my very favorite actors in the world and one of my earliest crushes, Edward Norton, is in Moonrise Kingdom! Yay!
He is LIT-trally the only man on the planet who could make high-waisted khaki shorts look good.
I loved the storybook aspect of the movie-- interestingly, none of these books actually exist as published works, Wes Anderson just wrote passages from them, but he's currently working on a side-project of animating the books that Suzy brought with her. Yay!
I absolutely loved the whole movie. Although it did make me a little melancholy that these two twelve-year-olds did so much to be able to stay together, and it made me very conscious of the fact that I don't currently have someone to go on adventures with.
(Except my best-friend-in-the-whole-wide-world, Marissa, of course. But I mean a male someone. A male someone who isn't one of my cats. You know what I mean.)
If you saw Moonrise Kingdom, what did you think of it?
This awesome piece of embroidery is one of my favorite quotes from the film.
Have a fantastic evening!
