"The Hunger Games" novelist Suzanne Collins has a new book coming out next year.
Any parent can tell you that finding a decent summer movie for the kids is a hard day's work. Blood-sucking vampires abound in the twilight zone, children fight to their death in violent hunger scripts, but it's not easy to find fantasy as magically alluring as a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm.
The story of a Wes Anderson movie is drawn from real life, or something like it, but at no time does anything resembling reality actually intrude.
The contradiction inherent to all Wes Anderson films _ the juxtaposition of the meticulous artificiality of the settings and the passionately wistful emotions that are longing to burst free _ is at its most effective in a while in "Moonrise Kingdom."
