Two Top Indie Films of 2012

 Two Top Indie Films of 2012: 1.  “Moonrise Kingdom” is coming-of-age, mid-life crisis indie film heart-warmer.  Leaving the chapel scene is picturesque of The Graduate and toward the end there is a Hitchcock feel.  With a knock out cast;  Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray 1960’s  double […]
