Just a quick one, but please have a look-see...

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about how much I love Wes Anderson's The Royal Tenenbaums. You can read it here if you want to...

For those of you who share my affection, here's a peak at his new flick, Moonrise Kingdom, due for release in the U.S. on the 25th of May (I can't find an Australian date (sniff) but I will definetely give you the heads-up when I do)

It looks wonderful, sweet and quirky. Aside from all the usual stuff people judge movies by (e.g. fabulous cast, lot's of Anderson regulars) it's set in 1965. So, for those of you crazy about the 60's, there's also alot to look at (and btw, 1965 is also the year I was born! Scary! Now you know how old I am! No wonder I need those specs eh!)    

I think it's going to be worthy of its own love letter and I can't wait to see it.

p.s. that gorgeous voice you hear at the end of the clip (coming from that totally cool portable turntable on the beach) belongs to Francoise Hardy. She is singing Le Temps de L'Amour. Such a groovy song, want to hear it again?  

I do...
it makes me feel like grabbing my vintage bikini and hitting the beach (the song, and the fact that it's 36 degrees celcius here today!) or I might just stay at home, blast the air-con and watch Gidget instead... 



  1. It looks like an interesting film! I love the girls dress.

  2. kylie? i will ALWAYS be older than you, so now you know how old i am, more or less...
    you're the second one drawing my attention to this movie, it will definitely install a craving in mine heart now too.
    ha! françoise...
    ps - that director does love his tents, don't he?

  3. looks goooooood - and I love ed norton, so with such a fab heads-up, the cast, and the styles, I'll be seeing it! x

  4. My kind of movie..a definite must-see. And that song is amazing - I am listening to it as I type - great lyrics too. I love French music - well, a lot of it, not all. You should hear the French rap my son listens to. Or maybe not. AAAAGH!

  5. The Royal Tennenbaums is my sister's all time favourite movie - I'll have to let her know about this! Thanks!

  6. Can't wait for this one!

  7. Sunshine and warmth ... oh, lucky you!

  8. What a quirky little movie, with an amazing cast line up. Will keep on the lookout for it. melx

  9. Yep, looks good, and great song.
    I'm a year older than you - ha, it's only a number, we still rock! xxx

  10. It looks like quite a good flick!
    I will have to keep my eye out for it.

    I seriously thought by your pics you were in your mid 30's
    Maybe you should share your beauty secrets with us all!
    How bout that???

  11. I adore his style! :) Can't wait to check out his new one. Funny enough, I just watched all of Gidget for the first time yesterday- LOVE that quaint retro movie. Have you seen the parody of it, "Psycho Beach Party"? It's one of my favorite movies of all time! So funny and pretty true to the original, too!

  12. Ooh the movie sounds like its going to be a great one - will keep my eye out for it. Loving the groovy tune too, although wouldnt subject anyone to seeing me hippy swing in a bikini ;o) I also cant believe you were born in 1965, i think thats a fib, and if it does happen to be true I really need your beauty tips, you are gorgeous and its only fair to share the secret..come on you know you want to.... Mwah Scarlett x

  13. It looks very promising and has a few of my favorite actors in it! I should rent the Tenenbaums, I haven't seen it since it came out.

  14. Oh this weather, can not get out of the pool!! I love it!! Love Posie

  15. That movie looks great. We love The Royal Tenenbaums, my ten year old dresses like one of them when she does her fitness regimes in the backyard. It is so funny to watch, she is all arms and legs. We even refer to her get-up as her Tenenbaum outfit. I can't wait to see the new one.

    Do you know that my auntie had a lounge that looked similar to the one in your header when I was a kid except it was white vinyl with red knubbly fabric upholstery and it used to be so scratchy and sweaty to sit on, I don't think there was a shred of natural materials in it!

  16. Hi - just wanted to let you know I've given you the Liebster Blog Award - over here:

  17. Naughty girls who fib about their age aren't allowed to go to the pictures Kylie. I'm sure you must have been born in the 70s. Else you've sold your soul to Satan for a lifetime of good skin and glamour!
