The Great Scenes # 52: Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Directed by Wes Anderson

Years ago, I was working on a script which is about a romance/infatuation between two young kids because I think a more serious, realistic film hasn't been made about budding sexuality at that part of our lives. It's usually white-washed/sexless or on the flip-side portrayed as something over-the-top, dark and negative. Well, Wes Anderson did it and this particular scene is pitch-perfect. It combines childhood innocence and budding sexuality in a very tasteful, funny and even sweet and endearing way.

This scene is incredible, just like you say it's actually very endearing and I'm pretty keen on it, really enjoyed it.
