Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom just opened the Cannes Film Festival and I think it looks wonderful. That familiar yellow filter, Bill Murray, precocious kids talking about love...the usual ;-)
I love Wes Anderson. Well, I mainly love the production design and art direction (occasionally the narrative is a tad plodding) but I was interested to see that he doesn't use the same team in every film, which means he has quite a vision. I'm such a sucker for American indie films, particularly about New York intellectuals for some reason. Must be a woody Allen thing.
Have you seen?
Gus was awake at 4.30 yesterday morning. I tried to bring him into bed with me but he finally dragged me out at 10 to 5. He wanted to watch Fantastic Mr Fox, which is too old for him but I didn't have the will to battle. And although I have seen it '60 hundred times'* it's absolutely beautiful.Have a smashing weekend my lovelies. What are you up to? I'm hopefully going here. I shall report back on Monday!
*Isi's favourite number when he is exaggerating about something. i.e
Isi: You've asked me 60 hundred times!
Me: Well DO it then!
And so on.
