Greg and I got to go on a “date day” yesterday. We usually go out in the afternoon/early evenings instead of having date nights because it’s just easier. We get home in time to put the kids to bed and are able to settle and veg out for a little while before we hit the pillows ourselves.
We went to see Moonrise Kingdom, which I completely fell in love with. I like all of Wes Anderson’s films, but this one definitely ranks up there with The Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore as one of my favorites… maybe one of my favorite movies ever. The young love and the innocence and honesty of the main characters, Sam and Suzy, really just tugged at my heart. The cinematography was beautiful and interesting and the soundtrack was fantastic (to be expected.) The story was romantic and sweet, suspenseful and a little silly. The entire film was just so charming! Are you ever just happy that something exists and thankful that you’ve been able to experience it? That’s how I feel about it. I can’t wait to watch it like sixty more times. ♥
