Moonrise Kingdom. Yes.

Go see Moonrise Kingdom http://www.moonrisekingdom.com/#home

The humor
The sadness
The acting
The directing
The Benjamin Britten music
The whole thing.

Listen for one of the great lines of the current era of cinema spoken by Frances McDormand to her daughter in a bathtub.

Friends, I don't want to oversell it. But this is fully up there with Rushmore, the other grand masterpiece of Wes Anderson.

Three thumbs up.

I couldn't agree more. From beginning to end, it was a delight.
