Great movie! Proves human connection is so much more powerful than cell phones and social media. Two kids, feeling out of place and alone, meet and instantly recognize something unwritten in each other and make plans to run away to be together. Their actions make people around them realize they need to look deeper at someone who seems so different from themselves and realize they are not so different after all.

A fel good movie with a little edge. Great cinematography, good book, fine casting. Gentle spoof of organixations like the Scouts. Plot sometimes a little contrived but all in all, worth going for the acting and the feelgood story.

This was a brilliant movie with an impressive cast of well known actors. I'll have to rate it as the best movie I've seen in over 10 years. The whole theatre clapped at the end. It left you feeling good and was highly entertaining for both male and females as my husband loved it too. Considering the quality of the movies that are currently out, this movie should be in all theatres. This isn't your standard movie, the filming was brilliant with radiant colors, and a quirkiness to it that makes it endearing. It's a MUST see!

Sort of a greatest hits of all of Wes Anderson's themes, techniques, favorite actors, etc. If you like his movies, then go see this.

My husband and I went to see this because the ratings were so good and it had a strong cast. We weren't disappointed. It's a bit quirky, but the story line is good and all the characters are played very well. Enjoyable.
