BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 6/1

MOONRISE KINGDOM

“In short, it’s simply a masterpiece.” – Jake Mulligan, EDGE Boston

“It’s a movie filled with joy and sadness, hilarity and heartbreak, and innocence that is both preserved and shattered.” – Greg Vellante, The Eagle Tribune

“A glorious film. Even those annoyed with Anderson’s hermetic dollhouse pictures might find something to cheer for here.” – Sean Burns, Philadelphia Weekly

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN
