We finally saw Moonrise Kingdom this weekend, and not surprisingly, I was smitten. I'm a huge fan of every one of Wes Anderson's films, the storytelling, style, all-star cast, cinemetography, and musical scores. I know it's early to be thinking about Halloween costumes (Chris and I REALLY enjoy dressing up as a couple), but I just fell head over heels for the two main characters, a pair of adolescent kids who fall in love and run away with each other into the wilderness. The girl, Suzy is sullen and introverted, and the only person who can bring her out of her shell is Sam, a boy who is a survivalist and wise beyond his years. I've locked this idea in with Chris, he has his old boy scout uniform, and we were Margot and Richie from The Royal Tenenbaums few years ago, so why not keep the tradition going and dress up as these two lovestruck 12-year olds?
Just for fun, here's some stills from the film, don't you just want to go to there?
