Moonrise Kingdom (2 or 3 stars)

I remember being captivated by the previews for Moonrise Kingdom. The visual style of this film is delightful, though not enough to carry it alone. But the cast is phenomenal (too many to list). Yet, the result is hard to recommend except as an amazing anachronism, a bit of amber preserving a long-gone time where affairs consisted of holding hands, people traded letters, and everyone smoked.

[With this movie, we resume our Netflix DVD subscription after several years of streaming-only. I still like Netflix streaming — especially the Windows 8.1 app — but the offerings are weak.]
