Moonrise Kingdom (2012) Rated PG-13

Moonrise KingdomA couple of kids run away, forcing a search party to look for them. Starring Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward, Jason Schwartzman.

This is a gem of a film. In his own enigmatic way, director Wes Anderson captures the innocence of childhood, circa 1965.  Both lighthearted and fraught with tension, the movie is characterized by Anderson’s trademarks:  dry humor and unusual characters.  If you’ve never seen one of his films, you must give them a try; they are a stark, intellectual, and refreshing departure from standard Hollywood fare.  This film enchants you with young love and adventure; it is worth a watch.
