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!

If you've loved his past films, then you will love this one. This film is a bit more laid back than his previous films, and unfortunately there is a lack of Kinks music in this one. But this should not deter you from going to see it. It is still a wonderful first love story, told Wes Andersen style. Go see it.

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.

An amazingly wonderful film, like a odd and quirky (almost) modern fairytale. One of my favorite movies of the year, if not my absolute favorite. Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward were refreshingly perfect as Sam Shakusky and Suzy Bishop, the two love-fated pre-teens. Great acting, wonderful dialogue and story. Must go!

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.
