It is the new Wes Anderson film, I think his best after Rushmore, which remains one of my favorites.
If you haven’t seen one of his films, and you tend to like the things I highlight on the blog, run do not walk to your Netflix queue or other movie source. Then go see Moonrise.
The scenes and characters are all fairly contrived, but in the most skillful and entertaining Wes Anderson way. Of the non-child characters, Bruce Willis (yes, Bruce Willis is in the film) steals the show.
