Bombs! . . . . #5) Moonrise Kingdom

Two bombs went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon today killing 2 and seriously injuring many others.  Another vicious attack from some deranged monster against innocent fun-loving Americans.  Like many of you, those innocent victims will be in my thoughts & prayers for peace of mind and complete healing of their wounds.

Wes Anderson's quirky drama follows the frantic search that ensues in a small New England town when two 12-year-olds fall in love and run away together. As the townsfolk hunt for the vanished kids, a storm causes even more profound communal upheaval.

Cast:  Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Bob Balaban, Harvey Keitel
Director:  Wes Anderson

This movie was chosen BEST by AARP for their "Best Movie for Grownups Who Refuse to Grow Up".

Cute movie of first loves but I still don't understand casting Bruce Willis and Bill Murray in this movie.  I gave it 3 Stars.  I'll watch "Hitchcock" tonight.
