What Kind of Bird Are You?

now playing: Romeo and Juliet Overture-fantasy | Tchaikovsky
mood: nervous and excited for different reasons

Today B and I went to see Moonrise Kingdom after lecture, and if you’re into stuff by Sofia Coppola or a fan of Wes Anderson (yes it’s written by him) you’ll be deeply in love within 5 seconds the film starts.

I love the setting (fictional) and the shooting location (Rhode Island). The props and costumes are simple yet cute. The characters have that Royal Tenenbaums feel (since it’s by Anderson), where they’re just dramatically annoyed and irritated all the time and keep things to a “few-elaborated” words when conversing. Then there’s always that dramatic love-seperation theme. If you’re more familiar with Sofia Coppola, then I can just tell you it’s the man version of her films with less haze, and more of a yellow-vintage filter to the film. It’s really really wonderful and worth your money, so I recommend the movie to you if you’re looking for something to watch.

My favorite character is Suzy, ahaha surprise surprise, because she reminds me of me at school and such. Plus her mentality is relatable, although i can promise you I have never stabbed anyone with a left hand scissor…

okay. at least not in real life.
