“Wes Anderson’s mind must be an exciting place for a story idea to be born.” - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times
“The hilarious and heartfelt Moonrise Kingdom is a consistent pleasure. By evoking the joys and terrors of childhood, it reminds us how to be alive.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“In this tale about growing up and falling in love, it seems Anderson has found his true heart.” -Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
At a Glance:Candy-colored, whimsical and off-beat tale of first love (and lots more)
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore — and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the boy and girl.
