Director Wes Anderson’s critically acclaimed, Moonrise Kingdom is a summer movie must see. The film is set in the Summer of 1965 on an island off the coast of New England. The small town is swept into a frenzy when young lovers, Sam (Jared Gillman) and Suzy (Kara Hayward) devise a plan to runaway together. How romantic…
The film’s features a stellar ensemble cast. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand are hysterical and heart warming as the dysfunctional parents of wild Suzy Bishop. Edward Norton (LOVE) is fantastic as the comedic and clueless troop leader, Scout Master Ward and Bruce Willis delivers a likeable performance as the small town’s lonely sheriff.
If you love “The Catcher in the Rye” then you will love Moonrise Kingdom. The film’s young love theme and summer time feel will leave anyone nostalgic for summers past. So if you’re in the mood for a movie that will leave you smiling, call your local theater and see if Moonrise Kingdom is playing near you!
P.S. The costumes and set design are AMAZING.
