Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, 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.

A scout is missing and the rest of the scouts are let loose to hunt him down... but he has run off with his girlfriend looking for an escape from the life of an orphan. Featuring the Wes Anderson quirk and charm that either you like or you hate, Moonrise Kingdom is fever dream mythic film about family, love and finding your place in the world.
This isn't my favorite Wes Anderson film, but I definitely enjoyed it. It had some great laughs, and I loved the production design as usual. The cast was great, and I loved the two "unknowns" who played the kids, let alone that it was an actual Wes Anderson movie centered around kids. It's not a kid's movie exactly though.
The soundtrack wasn't as great as some of his other movies, but I still enjoyed it. A solid addition to his collection.
Another delightful Wes Anderson film. When I saw this in the theater when it first came out I wasn't sure how I felt about it. Everyone told me I'd love it. So I was almost afraid to love it. And I didn't love it. Then I saw it for a second time, and sure enough, I loved it.
It was great to have a couple of 12 year olds as the protagonists. Hello, Bill Murray and Bruce Willis. Witty dialog. A charming plot. A million and one Wes Andersonisms.
