A very smartly written quirky period piece film set during the 60's that focuses on two tweens and their outcast social situation but finding themselves together. At times I wasn't sure if I should admire the story or turn it off cause it felt more than a bit awkward really with the amount of physicality they showed a 12&13 yr old engaging in. Being a dog person I also can't say I liked how Snoopy was treated. I'll have to tell a friend she'll have to not watch it. Dogs=dead is a no-no for her in a film. Ed Norton, Bill Murray, Bruce Willis and Frances McDormand all perform admirably and bring to life this island community a bit detached from "normal" and adding to the quirkiness inherent throughout the film.
