The time: Summer, 1965. The place: a fairy-tale New England that should have been but never was. Two young outcasts fall in love and run away to make a life for themselves, against the wishes of their family. Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola’s MOONRISE KINGDOM is a tale of first love, and nominated for the Academy’s screenwriting award. Deservedly so? Discuss!
Seated across from David and Piers, in a plush high-back armchair, is comedian and screenwriter DANIEL HUOT. Pipe in hand, smoking vest thrown casually over one shoulder, and with a impish glint in his eye, Daniel perfectly encapsulates Wes Anderson’s charming and childlike worlds. And that is precisely why he is this week’s guest podcaster.
