You know from the first frame of Moonrise Kingdom that you are watching a Wes Anderson movie; they’re not like anyone else’s. The textures are more textured, the children are wise beyond their years, in fact all the characters are just a bit off, but in a good way. I enjoyed Rushmore, The Royal Tannenbaums, even The Fantastic Mr. Fox. And happily, Moonrise Kingdom is his best yet. Funny, sweet and totally entertaining, it an indie gem.
The revolutionary movement of design-build architecture programs is spreading across the US. Students of architecture venture into oft-forgotten regions to lend their expertise towards building up poverty-stricken communities. ALL HALE is inspired by such a program and is set in Hale County, Alabama where a history of unemployment dominates. This film connects the true-to-life dots between the spirited locals, well intentioned volunteers, and powerful land owners. www.allhalemovie.com
