Film Society and Moonrise Kingdom

Love belonging to the DC Film Society. You get the chance to see new movies just before their big release.

the line for Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom was over 200 people long and filled the entire bottom of the waiting area. I didn’t think we were going to get in. But we got in and got seats in the fourth row up. Didn’t have to strain the neck to see.

The movie is well-acted and beautifully filmed. Bruce Willis is funny as is Jason Schwartzman and Ed Norton.

Those who love Anderson will enjoy this movie for its otherworldliness.

The critics loved it, scoring a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes; audiences gave it less but a still high 87%.

I didn’t think it had anything to say about the world, life, or anything else. The director has made this kind of movie before and I think it’s time to stretch boundaries and try to comment on the world.
