Lincoln Woods

Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom opened this past weekend. While I haven’t seen it yet, I already know that I’m going to love it. Besides being a devoted fan of this aesthetics obsessed auteur, the film was shot in a location that is very dear to my heart. Seeing my beloved Rhode Island Lincoln Woods in the trailer is a surreal feeling. To know that a director I admire so much enjoyed the same landscape that sustained me through 3 trying years of my twenties, and to know that it will be immortalized in his trademark style…well, I’m over the moon about it! 

I spent a lot, a LOT of time in these woods and I loved watching them change every day. Here are a few of my favorite memories, more on view here

The only cinematic excitement that will top this is watching Safety Not Guaranteed, where a few of my favorite actors shot scenes in Discovery Park, my Seattle counterpart to Olney Pond.
