Happy Friday everyone! So I’m sharing with you all today, yet another scene for the week. I know it’s usually a Wednesday thing but for some reason, my brain just doesn’t want to function on Wednesdays, and I always forget. This week, the scene I chose is from ‘Moonrise Kingdom’, a film directed by Wes Anderson- a unique guy and one of my personal favorites.’Moonrise Kingdom’, like all of his other films, is classic Anderson. There are the symmetrical set ups of shots, the close ups framed with equal space around them, the dry humor and unique,quirky characters. This scene in particular, is one of my favorites because of the way it is shot, with close ups of their expressions that say everything for them. I also find the dialogue funny- dry and hard to get if you are more into the slapstick and punch line type of comedy- and endearing. And the kid actors are so cute. Hope you enjoy!

I'm from Florida, a junior at the University of Central Florida. Currently, I'm a political science-IR major. I'm an avid traveler and explorer of all things worth exploring. Hoarder of books and movies, and caretaker to my beloved camera and piano. I think conformity and math are terrible, but vegetarianism and nature conservation are awesome. Traveling is also a huge passion of mine. I thank my parents for that, as they took my two sisters and I around the world from the time we were in diapers; now I'll forever have the travel bug. I have a variety of interests from photography to theatre to the great outdoors. Growing up, I always felt an urge to get out in the world, explore and be actively involved in efforts dedicated to making changes in the world, impacting something or someone in a inspirational and positive way. It's important to notice what is happening in the world, to fight for what is good and what is right. As someone who is diagnosed with clinical depression and ADHD, I am an advocate for mental health education and thus one of the cornerstones of this blog is writing to inspire others;to say, whether it's through a review or a poem, that the human experience is a hard one but worthwhile. This blog covers entertainment, travel, current events and personal pieces as well. Thanks for stopping by! :)
