6 reasons to watch Moonrise Kingdom

Since I’ve seen Moonrise Kingdom it’s been one of my favourite movies. Why? Six reasons to watch this movie:


1. It’s a love story

About two kids falling in love, writing love letters to each other and who run away together (she from home, he from camp).

Trailer:


2. Directed by Anderson

Wes Anderson can be recognised by his centered shots, long takes and tracking shots (camera moving along with walking characters). The images are super arty.

3. Girl hero: Suzy Bishop

At first glance this girls looks like a fine lady in her cute dress and Sunday shoes, but Suzy is pretty rebellious. For example: she puts a pair of scissors in the back of one of the scouts that wants to stop our love couple. She likes to read books about magic powers and prefers girl heroes. Also, she carries around her binoculors (her ‘magic power’) all the time.


4. This song by Fran├žoise Hardy

Love the French. Suzy’s favourite song and their first slow-dance moment



5. Sixties outfits

Suzy’s style is on point! How about her soft pink cape, burgundy beret, pink dress and cat basket?
