So I finally got to sit down and watch Wes Anderson's latest film, Moonrise Kingdom. I definitely enjoyed the film, but I couldn't help but notice that at times it was VERY Wes Anderson, but at other times it wasn't. I don't see this as an issue, though, as it was nice seeing a variety to Anderson's work. The film, a story about two troubled youths in 1965 New England running away together, is a charming piece, that very easily could have gotten creepy in one section where the two young characters are in their underwear dancing on a beach, but was able to retain that charm and innocence. The ending is predictable, but still entertaining. The acting is superb, though at teams it seems the actors are fitting into the same character traits that they tend to play, it's really nice seeing a sense of fragility in Ed Norton and Bruce Willis. Definitely a film I plan on watching again, for all the right reasons.
