Wes Anderson's quirky but heartfelt films have made him one of our generation's defining directors, but surprisingly, this year marked his first Cannes Film Festival premiere. We spoke with Wes at the fest shortly after the debut of Moonrise Kingdom, which tells the story of two 12-year-olds in love. He told us the film was equal parts fantasy and memory for him and also discussed whether he had younger versions of two of his most iconic characters — Margot Tenenbaum and Max Fischer — in mind while writing the new project. Moonrise Kingdom is in select theaters now.
