Hey there! The Director of the Week is...*drum roll please*... Wes Anderson!!! Congrats Wes! The Film of the Week is Moonrise Kingdom. Moonrise Kingdom is one of my personal favorites. It is a drama/ comedy/ romance film. Like most of Wes Anderson's films, there isn't much dialogue and the characters speak pretty directly to each other, and the movie frames are aesthetically pleasing, The film takes place in the 60's and it primarily focuses on two characters, Sam and Suzy. Sam and Suzy are pen pals and are also in love. They are both from tough backgrounds; Suzy is misunderstood by her parents and Sam is an orphan. I don't want to spoil anything for you guys that haven't seen it, so lets graduate to the reviewing part of this post. This film is beautifully constructed and I 10/10 recommend. I give this film 5 stars. I really like how Wes makes the characters only speak directly, for it adds emphasis and importance to what they say. I know there are a lot of romance films or, more specifically, films about young love, but Moonrise Kingdom is extraordinary in the sense that it is not like any other film I've seen before. Hahaha, other than Wes's other films because of their similar directing styles (obviously since it's the same director....lol). Moonrise Kingdom's screenplay was written by Roman Coppola, son of the legend Francis Ford Coppola. Basically, what I'm trying to say is, this film is awesome and you should really see it. If you're a Bill Murray fan, watch this film. If you're a Tilda Swinton fan, watch this film. If you're a Frances McDormand(!!!!!!) fan, watch this film! Even Bruce Willis is in there!!!! It's a MUST WATCH! I can honestly promise you you will not be disappointed. I hope I made my point. Even if I didn't, WATCH THIS MOVIE ANYWAYS. I'm done. Buh bye.
