Oct. 19th & 20th - Moonrise Kingdom - Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn.
Set in 1965, Moonrise Kingdom is a stylized coming of age film that delivers on its promise to bring the viewer of any age back to the intensity of just-entering-adolescence love. That alone makes this an extraordinary film. In addition, the music and imagery are beautifully orchestrated to delight the senses. The casting, characters, and acting are superb. It is rare to have a film that puts together this much talent and then taps it to the fullest. Throughout, the film is subtly hilarious. In trademark Anderson fashion, the lines are delivered in an almost deadpan way with all the characters completely oblivious to the irony and ridiculousness of the situation, dialog, and even their lives and themselves. Tickets $5/online, $6/at the door, 10/19, 1:00 & 8:00 pm, 10/20, 8:00 pm. www.auburnpublictheater.org 315-253-6669
