On an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, two twelve-year-olds (Kara Hayward, Jared Gilman) who fall in love, make a secret pact and run away together into the wilderness. As a local search party led by the Sheriff (Bruce Willis) and the girl's parents (Bill Murray, Frances McDormand) 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.
- Set tour with Bill Murray
Wes Anderson had been away from live-action film making for half a decade come the release of Moonrise Kingdom in 2012. And while he earned an Oscar nomination and no shortage of acclaim for his stop motion adaptation of Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox, Moonrise Kingdom proved to be something even more special. And well worth the wait.
A mix of romance, comedy and drama, Moonrise Kingdom is set in 1965 and centres on a pair of twelve-year-olds who decide to run away together. Cue the inevitable search party, featuring the likes of Bill Murray, Bruce Willis and Frances McDormand, and the scene is set for one of Anderson's trademark off-the-wall pieces of cinema.
But what an off-the-wall piece of cinema this proves to be. Quirky, funny and with a real identity that sets it apart from most of 2012's cinema releases, Moonrise Kingdom is an excellent film, and one that lingers around your brain long after the credits have rolled.
The disc's hardly shabby, either. Granted, there's room for a bulkier special edition at some point in the future, but you're not shortchanged with the look around the Moonrise Kingdom set in the company of Bill Murray that you get here.
Funny, distinctive and with lashings of charm, Moonrise Kingdom is a vintage, top quality Wes Anderson movie. And that in itself is no small praise... --Jon Foster

All of that seems ordinary enough, but Anderson frames the story in interesting ways, both visually and dramaturgically. The adult world of the scout camp and Suzy's home is presented in terms of a high degree of linear organization: rooms are boxy and behaviour is regimented to a cartoonish extent, and the regimentation of the scout troop is very clear, and the impression that the viewer gets is of two young people trying to get away from life in a cartoon and escape into something more authentic.Read more ›
I enjoyed it, but didn't find it that funny!!!!
The performances from the leads - Willis, Norton, Swinton and Murray are rather sublime but it's the strangely enigmatic acting from the 'young newbies' Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward that steal the show as two pubescent children taking comfort and solace in each others company as they escape the strangeness of their lives. Pursued by their respective so-called "responsible adults", (that's the funny bit, I suppose?), they desperately try to find consolation in an effort to make some sense out of their muddled lives.
I had to watch it three times before I could come to a conclusion - it is a good film; in my opinion a very thought provoking one.
Perhaps I took it too seriously? However, I found it hard not too!
Good film - not what I expected, but I think I got much more out of it because of this.
Despite a big name cast the stars of this film are the two young leads, Kara Haywood and Jared Gilman, who play a couple of children who meet briefly one summer whilst Gilman's character is camping on the island where Haywood lives. One year on they plan to meet again running away to a remote part of the island to spend a week together. Upon this discovery the adults and the rest of the scout campers (who don't really like the boy) set off to find them. The story has a twist in that all are unaware of the fact that a severe storm is just 48 hours from hitting land and creating havoc.
This is a gently played film in which the adults all seem to have exaggerated personas which fits the idea that the film not only has child protagonists but also sees the rest of the world from their point of view. The effect is sometimes comic but it is charming throughout. It is a little disorientating but if you're prepared to let yourself go with it, this is a gem of a film.
The young leads are slightly awkward and faintly dysfuntional and played excellently. Their love for each other is strong and filled with innocence. The adults seem more troubled people Edward Norton, as the scout leader, is particularly excellent and Bruce Willis, playing the island's only law enforcement, puts in a nicely understated performance.Read more ›
