I don't know where to begin with this film. Not necessarily because it's 'that good' which it is, but because the story is so personal. I can relate to these characters. You feel every single thing they feel. You are with them 100%. When it ended I found myself wanting more which is always a good thing in my opinion. This movie transcends itself and becomes more than just a "gay movie" (I will admit I was reminded of this movie on one of Total Films lists called 50 Best Gay Movies...this movie was number 4 just as an FYI). Simply watch and see for yourself. If you aren't left feeling the feelings of the two characters you didn't watch the film.
While the movie may not have been as great as it could have been, watching merely for the performances from the actors, especially Meryl Streep, is rewarding enough. It is no surprise Streep won her third Academy Award (second for Lead Actress).
I went to see this movie on a date and absolutely loved it! 'Moonrise' is probably my favorite Wes Anderson film and that's saying something given the amount of love I have for his films. All the usual quirkiness and heart of a Wes Anderson film is there and in abundance. The story between the young boy and girl is something truly great to see unfold. The dialogue (as per usual) is something only Wes could do.
Beautiful through and through. The film is an amazing directorial and writing debut of fashion designer Tom Ford. Colin Firth's performance is so beautiful and moving. I feel that this film is often underrated though which is a shame. It is also nice to see that this film isn't necessarily labeled a 'gay movie.' Instead, it is a movie about a man who has lost his lover and shows how he copes with that loss. No review would be coplete without mentioning the AMAZING score by Abel Korzeniowski. Give it a watch, you will not be dissappointed.
