Aaron, Mark and David Blakeslee talk about Moonrise Kingdom, which ties closely to personal events in David’s life that he was generous to share with us. We also discuss the dichotomy of Wes Anderson. Why is he such a divisive director? What is it about him that attracts and repels people with such passion?
