Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, two 12-year-olds 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 every which way.
Drama - This is another quirky comedy-drama from director Wes Anderson, this
time set in the 1960s, and the big names in the cast such as Bruce
Willis and Edward Norton have small supporting roles to the two young
newcomer leads. While pre-teens are the main characters, some mature
subject matter and language makes this a film for adults and not kids.
PROFANITY: 1 F-word; 3 GD's; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Mild clothed sensuality between a pre-teen boy and girl. VIOLENCE: A stabbing; pushes. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol including by pre-teens; frequent tobacco. ACTION: A chase. COMEDY: Dry comic lines and situations; animal humor; kid humor.
USA TodayFull Review Very Good A lyrical blend of wit, whimsy and woe is Anderson's trademark, and Moonrise Kingdom is no exception. With its focus on a pair of 12-year-olds, the film has the quality of an offbeat fairy tale that is both meticulously detailed and dreamlike.
