1. Moonrise Kingdom
Even though the other four movies I previously listed were fantastic, it was no contest on what was going to be my number one choice. Moonrise Kingdom has been a film that is not only one of my favorite Anderson films but one of my favorite films in general. Not only is it a beautiful story , but it’s just beautiful in general. The time frame is 1965 and the setting looks like it should be on a cover of an old story book. Beautiful, funny, and extremely adorable, Moonrise Kingdom makes viewers reminisce about their first love. . Sam (Jared Gilman) is an outcast and is constantly bullied by his fellow boy scouts while they are away at camp. He runs away to find Suzy (Kara Hayward) who he believes is his true love while on a pursuit from her controlling parents (Frances McDormand and Bill Murray) and his boyscout leader (Edward Norton). It’s a great coming of age story that reminds everyone that it doesn’t matter who they fall in love with.
