Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

From this review of the movie:

Moonrise Kingdom isn’t a movie about childhood: It’s a movie about how we remember childhood, when confrontations with other kids seemed to have life-or-death stakes, grown-ups spoke about things we didn’t understand or care about, and it really was possible to run away and go on a wild adventure, as long as you brought the proper supplies. The film is precious and adorable, but it isn’t naïve (these kids are becoming sexually aware), and the movie breathes so deep that Anderson even gets a real performance out of Willis (this is his best work in years). Most of Anderson’s previous pictures came from the head; Moonrise Kingdom is one from the heart.


Please watch the movie before the meetup. Information to help find the films will generally be posted in the description or in the comments on the webpage.

During the meetup itself, we discuss the movie, but we don't watch it. It's a book club style movie group.

    My cold has worsened over the weekend. Must stay away for the greater good. Hope you all will post some comments online. Will miss the analysis and banter-- and good-natured bickering!

    Unfortunately, I, too, am under the weather, and will miss our gathering today. I am really sorry, because I loved Moonrise Kingdom and I love our group! I look forward to seeing you all another time.
