MOONRISE KINGDOM
May 31, 2013  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

HBO, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
Writer-director Wes Anderson is kind of like a kooky Stanley Kubrick: His films are composed with an obsessive and impressive attention to detail, and his characters are as original as they are unpredictable. In this Anderson 2012 film, two preteens in love (played by Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward) scheme to set off together,  leaving their families and other concerned people behind to search and wonder. These significant others are played by a diverse, beautifully employed ensemble of actors, including Edward Norton, Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Bill Murray. A total delight.

I loved, loved, loved this movie. "...a kooky Stanley Kubrick..." Never thought of it that way! :-)
