There is something about being back in the distinct world of a filmmaker that can be both comforting and exciting. And while Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" marks his first period picture and first live action movie since 2007's "The Darjeeling Limited" everything we've seen thus points to the tone and aesthetic we've always admired from the filmmaker.
