Moonrise Kingdom(2012)

This movie is adorable in typical Wes Anderson fashion. At the same time, it's possibly one of my least favorite Wes Anderson movies, which says something about the quality of his work. The interaction of the characters, especially the kids, was great, and it's really strongly written. Yet something doesn't quite "pop" in the way that you expect a movie to which can be frustrating, and it's really hard to place your finger on why, which is probably why it's only been nominated for its screenplay. It's definitely a good movie and worth a look if you haven't seen it.
