On Tuesday night Mark and I went to the movies – our first in a while. We saw Moonrise Kingdom. If you need an idea to beat the heat for two hours, if you want to laugh, if you want to go back to camp without the big bites, if you want to be delighted – go see Moonrise Kingdom.
Moonrise Kingdom is the sweet story of Sam, a misfit orphan, who is a skillful khaki scout, and Suzy, a troubled and sassy oldest child from a loveless marriage and their journey to run away together and the town’s, her parents’, his fellow scouts’ quest to find them.
The movie tackles big issues and big adolescent milestones through the vivid scenery of a storybook and a 12-year-old’s perspective.
Share a popcorn, hold hands, go to the movies.
