Yesterday I saw Moonrise Kingdom with eric. It is a pretty rare thing that my inherent corniness jives with his nothing fancy sensibility. Moonrise Kingdom is just so darn good it transcends the gap between hyper stylized romanticism and subtle social commentary (and the exploration of Individual sadness and eccentricity therein). DARK UNDERCURRENT! ATTENTION TO DETAIL! CLIPPED DIALOGUE! The simple beauty of young love and the ugliness of adults behaving badly.
Mr. Bishop: I wish the roof would open up and the storm would carry me away
Mrs. Bishop: Oh, stop feeling sorry for yourself.
Mr. Bishop: Why?
Instead of red and dark purple lipstick I want to start wearing LURID AZURE BLUE eyeshadow.
GO SEE MOONRISE KINGDOM!
