bobby and i just saw 'moonrise kingdom' and what a dreamlike perfection it was. i totally encourage you to see it. it warmed my heart to the extreme and i couldn't help but thinking the entire time - 'this is exactly what bobby and i would've done"
it's about a pair of young lovers -suzy and sam- fleeing their new england town, which causes a local search party to fan out and find them. sam, a is a snappy boy scout who hauls around hiking gear for every possible accident, and suzy brings binoculars, a portable record player and an assortment of library books. as they fumble towards love they also show us the fairy-tale starngeness of everyday life.
besides being a wonderful story the acting is stellar, the art direction is spot on, and the soundtrack is perfect.
can you tell i loved it - let me know what you think!
also, this is my favorite song from the movie to really get you in the mood.
