And You Call Yourself a Film Buff?! Rushmore

Rushmore

All’s fair when love is war.

I have always been a Wes Anderson fan. Ever since I was exposed to his stunning cinematography and beyond-quirky characters in The Royal Tennebaums, I have been on the Wes Anderson bandwagon. However, there have been and still are some notable gaps in my knowledge. Although I have seen and very much enjoyed Moonrise Kingdom, The Darjeerling Limited, and, my personal favorite, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, I have yet to see Bottle Rocket or Steve Zissou. Tremendous oversights, I know, but at least now I can say that I’ve closed the gap somewhat after watching Anderson’s second feature film Rushmore.

Last Wednesday, the Philadelphia Film Society held a preview screening of Moonrise Kingdom,the ninth film of acclaimed director, Wes Anderson. The latest installment from the director that brought us The Royal Tennenbaums and Fantastic Mr. Fox, traces two committed youngsters, Sam and Suzy on their adventure to run awayfrom their misunderstood lives, so they can be hidden away from the rest of the world on the small, rocky Rhode Island beach cove they have named together, Moonrise Kingdom.
