I would like to live in the Moonrise Kingdom

Have you ever wished to live inside a movie?
I have, many many times... and I think this topic is worth a section.

So, with today's post I'm inaugurating "Movies I would like to live in", a section devoted to all those special films that made me smile.

The first movie I want to add to the list is Moonrise Kingdom, the latest film from Wes Anderson.

It is a very peculiar film, one of those that you either love or hate.
Do not expect a super elaborated storyline and a ton of action and special effects. This is more the sort of movie with an extremely simple (and sweet) plot, wonderful atmosphere and a bunch of extremely talented actors. 

My kind of movie, but clearly not for everyone.

Moonrise Kingdom tells the love story of two kids that run away from home just because they want to be together.

Watching the two of them fall into a young/rebel love made me smile... and wish to be called Suzy, not only to have a Sam to scape with but also to get the chance to wear this orange dress:

Moonrise Kingdom has all the ingredients to become one of my favorite movies of this year.
And definitely one of those films I would like to live in, for many reasons:
  • genuine love
  • clever humor 
  • surrealistic atmosphere
  • quirkiness
  • a cat
  • inspiring visual style 
  • the soundtrack
  • vintage color scheme
  • 60's outfits

I don't know why but I just love it.
