Starry Starry Night 《星空》 (Lin, 2012) and Moonrise Kingdom (Anderson, 2012)

Starry Starry Night (Lin, 2012) and Moonrise Kingdom (Anderson, 2012) were two of the most entertaining and pleasant films of 2012.

Both films envision childhood from the vantage point of the late pre-teen or early-teen who, as I recall from both the films and personal experience, do everything adults do for the first time without the memory of previous failure or unrealized dreams.

A transnational comparison should be anticipated if it has not been accomplished already, both in terms of analyzing their respective synoptic plots (following Peter Brook’s hermeneutic and proairetic codes...) yet also, these narratives might be mapped according to the protagonist's psychological states, recorded diary-like, intertwined with their various respective time periods/regions/actions/choices, allowing for new convergences of meaning.
