Wes Anderson Directs A Funny Or Die MOONRISE KINGDOM Tie-In

Cousin Ben shows the movie to a bunch of Khaki Scouts.

This Funny or Die video isn't particularly revelatory, but I like the way it puts me right back into the lovely world of Moonrise Kingdom. Wes Anderson's latest film is easily one of the best movies of the year, and I welcome any chance to get back into it, like a warm and worn coat. 

The video has Cousin Ben, Jason Schwartzman's character, showing Moonrise Kingdom to a troop of Khaki Scouts. Again, nothing that will change your mind about Anderson or the movie, but it's lovely. And by the way - while Cousin Ben doesn't know why the film is called Moonrise Kingdom, it is explained in the movie. Don't let it be spoiled for you.
