Moonrise Kingdom

Moonrise Kingdom is magical: exactly the movie Wes Anderson has been trying to make for years. I don't want to say anything more about it than that. Just see it if you haven't.

(Okay, one thing for folks who've seen the movie: There is a huge opportunity for the film's portrayal of the young girl heroine of the story to go kind of skeevy. The film avoids this completely, making it look effortless. I didn't even think of it until days after I saw the film. Amazing.)

In what I presume is Oscar bait, there's a gorgeous illustrated screenplay available online. Joe Bob says check it out.
