I love you, Wes Anderson

I'm straight, I'm heterosexual, I only like women, I'm married and have 2 kids, but I want to marry Wes Anderson. 
That's how much I love his movies.
All of his movies have the same signature style, but the plot of each film is different.
Moonrise Kingdom was everything I expected it to be.

I'm not going to ruin the move for you by giving away details, other than to say that it's about a 12 year old Khaki Scout who is in love with the 12 year old daughter of 2 lawyers.
The Khaki Scouts are a send-up of the Boy Scouts, in the same manner that The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (my favorite movie) was a loving send-up of Jacques Cousteau and the crew of the Calypso.
Go see Moonrise Kingdom while it's still playing in the movie theaters.
