Product Description

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.

Extras:
- Set tour with Bill Murray

Review

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Moonrise Kingdom 24 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great film and typical of Wes Anderson's usual style and humour so if you like his movies, you wont be disappointed! There's a great adult cast who hold the whole thing together but the child actors do a great job in the two lead roles too. The story is relatively simple, but if you're looking for a good laugh and some odd humour then you'll enjoy this!

5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem 17 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I only came upon this film by chance and wow what a surprise it was breathtaking. From opening credits to end credits we sat amazed by the stunning visual feast and the story was pretty cool too. I have since shared this film with a number of people who have all had the same reaction it's awesome see it people and wonder at why the crap that makes money in the big screens s nowhere near as good as this lost gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'M KEEPING THE NICKLES. 23 May 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The Indy style movie has become so popular, major studios have copied it. This film has a well written script, effective sound track, excellent acting, background distractions, and of course quirky memorable characters. The film might may be best classified as a light drama, leaning toward comedy.

In this 1965 tale two misfit 12 year kids conspire to run off together. Sam (Jared Gilman) is a teased orphan scout. Suzy (Kara Hayward) is the daughter of two lawyers. They live on a New England island. A search party for the two missing youths is lead by "sad dumb policeman" Captain Sharp (Bruce Willis). Captain Sharp is having an affair with the mother of Suzy (Frances McDormand). Bill Murray plays the rather straight husband.

There is a scene where the two youths get close to each that made me uncomfortable for a moment. Fortunately the scene didn't last long and the film returned to its quirky self, with bits of dark comedy. While it is PG-13, I wouldn't want my 13 year old to watch it. It might give them ideas.

This is Kara Haywood's first full length film. I see a great career for her.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Kara Haywood in bra/undies. Some groping.

5.0 out of 5 stars Literally the best thing ever 11 Oct 2012
By E
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had been waiting and waiting with anticipation for this to come out on DVD after seeing it at the cinema three times. I can honestly say, hands down, it is Wes Anderson's best film to date. The cinematography is an absolute visual feast that leaves me arranging things in nice straight lines for hours after watching the film, plus these are most talented and loveable child actors I've ever seen (in fact the adult cast is also equally as exciting) and the story has me laughing and crying throughout every time. I just cannot express enough love for this film... and you can see the love that went into making it. It's just artistically awe inspiring and gets the perfect balance of blockbuster and art house influence... makes me want to be a child again. JUST WATCH IT IT'S AMAZING PLEASE!!!!!
