Moonrise Kingdom

Another brilliant, quirky and slightly whimsical family drama by Wes Anderson that has that rare cinematic quality of genuine laugh out loud moments from the heart and belly. Brilliant, sublime comedic turns by the adult cast: Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Edward Norton and Tilda Swinton; earnest and sincere performances by the young actors (particularly the 2 young leads). Also, one of Alexandre Desplat's best score (to appreciate it fullest, stay for the whole credits)! One of the best gems of the year and I wouldn't be surprised if it gets some love during Oscar season. Well directed, well scripted, well acted and well scored! An excellent example of the power of of (exquisite) storytelling.
