{MOONRISE KINDOM} behind the scenes . . .

“Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness.”

Nothing resonates quite as much with us as a good old summer island mystery. Check out these short inside scoops with actor-extraordinaire Bob Balaban on the film’s stars Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, and director Wes Anderson over at Inside Movies with Entertainment Weekly. 

Bob gives his insight on the actors, offering such insight as “He’s laughing. I don’t think that is part of the scene.”

So enjoy these snippets from Focus Features in the links below!

This looks like it’s gonna be one very khaki-extraordinary-Francoise Hardy-sort-of -extravaganza of the summer. Definitely check out the Moonrise Kingdom site for an interactive look at a map of New Penzance Island, the fictitious island portrayed in the film.

Moonrise Kingdom will kick off the Cannes Film Festival on May 16, and premiere to audiences May 25.

This is the only time I’ve been consciously trying to capture a sensation, which is that emotion of when you’re a 12-year-old and you fall in love….I remember that being such a powerful feeling, it was almost like going into a fantasy world. It’s stuck with me enough that I think about it still.

Hope you enjoy!

2012: Year of the Boy Scout!


The news is out, and hipsters and cinephiles everywhere wish they could be in Cannes this year to watch this year’s opening film for the 65th Annual Film Festival: Wes Anderson’s newest flick, “Moonrise Kingdom”.

With an all-star cast that includes Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Frances McDormand, Jason Schwartzman, and Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the story’s young heroes – we cant’ but help gush.

Wes Anderson is a rare breed of man who has been able to harness and build his own brand of style which he displays throughout each of his films. It’s a style that is as much quirky as it is conventional, blending and arranging vintage elements in ways that are wholly unique.

We knew there was something special about this film the second the trailer blazed before our eyes, but the recent news has just made the excitement grow even more!

Hate to say “I told you so”, but looks like Boy Scout Style is here to say. And from the looks of everything, it could really end up being the Year of the Boy Scout.

So put on your pins and khakis, tie on that neckerchief, and let’s explore!


Loving Jason Schwartzman’s aviator glasses, but can’t help notice Kara Hayward’s styling Suzie. Could she be this generation’s Margot Tenebaum? My bet is on YES.
