The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow

Sam - "Suzy, I love you, but you have no idea what you're talking about."

This was the quote that stuck in my head after seeing the movie, Moonrise Kingdom.

Sam was replying to Suzy who had just stated that she wished she was an orphan because all of her favorite characters in her books were orphans.

I thought this moment was a clever way to acknowledge the overuse of orphan characters in children's literature in the context of a movie about an orphan character.

I highly recommend you go see it in the theater while you can.

Love your line work!
Bold and expressive. Nice color choices too!

Great. Something extra sad about this one. It reminds me of a pilgrim girl (event though they wouldn't have windows). Looking out at her limited choices.

I loved that movie, and that line specifically, which I think is also just about romanticizing a pain you've never felt. And I love this sad girl.
