Moonrise Kingdom is like a memory brought into screen. Wes Anderson and Roman Copolla compiled Anderson’s cinematography signature, vintage color tone, classic music and the landscape of New England‘s coast.
There is a feel of Enid Blyton’s The Famous Five adventure in this movie when Sam and Suzy’s summer was filled with performances, outdoor adventures, camping out, and the importance of having a compass in hand.
Whenever I watch this movie (and I have been watching it a dozen times), I relive another summer in Maine with tracking in pine woods, picnic at the rocky beaches, and watching lighthouses lay before the blue sky backdrop.
More than a year ago, Shalimma took inspiration from the movie and cross combined it to create our 2011 Cruise Bag Look Book.
Take time to enjoy this movie and be ready to be intrigued for an outdoor escapade this Eid ul-Fitr break. – Rassi Narika
