Moonrise Kingdom (2012)


Moonrise Kingdom is a 2012 American coming-of-age film directed by Wes Anderson, written by Anderson and Roman Coppola, and described as an “eccentric, pubescent love story.” It features newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward in the main roles and an ensemble cast. Filming took place in Rhode Island from April to June 2011. Worldwide rights to the independently produced film were acquired by Focus Features.

While preparing the script for Moonrise Kingdom, director Wes Anderson viewed films about young love for inspiration, such as Black Jack, Small Change, A Little Romance, and Melody. The film received critical acclaim, was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, and was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The film was later chosen to be the 95th greatest film since 2000 in an international critics’ poll conducted by BBC.

Deep Water (2006)


Here’s one of the best documentary films you’ll see…

Donald Crowhurst was a British businessman and amateur sailor who died while competing in the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race, a single-handed, round-the-world yacht race. Crowhurst had entered the race in hopes of winning a cash prize from The Sunday Times to aid his failing business. He encountered many difficulties early in the race, and secretly began reporting false positions, in an attempt to appear to complete a circumnavigation without actually circling the world. I wont give away the rest. Even if your normally not crazy about documentaries, this story is compelling. I highly recommend checking this one out.
