Moonrise Kingdom and Lunch!

Join me for lunch and a movie

I will make some veggie chili and corn bread. You are welcome to bring a salad or fruit or dessert.

This quirky, sweet-natured film, Moonrise Kingdom, 94 minutes, is just chock full of performances, scenes, images, and music, that should charm and delight film fans, of all ages. This story of young love and adventure, takes place in 1965 on a set of remote New England islands, as a troubled Khaki Scout and the new love of his life, set off on an adventure that mobilizes his fellow scouts, her parents, and local authorities; in an effort to thwart their plans.

Things and consequences, spring up in unlikely places, as secrets and complications, are revealed, and various levels of mayhem and disruption ensue. Once again Wes Anderson; successfully brings his considerable talents to the fore, with his usual mix of, clever writing, deadpan humor, imaginative sets, charming oddities, and unexpected twists, snappily moving the story along to its satisfying conclusion.

The film never takes itself too seriously and much to its credit it features; an enchanting setting, several good performances, and a nice selection of complimentary tunes and melodies. Good clean fun with kids on the run and adults doing their best to keep up, I would rate this one at five rather well earned merit badges; and would certainly recommend it for those whose minds are open, or even slightly ajar.
