Synopsis: Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom 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.
Critics: “Moonrise Kingdom" breezes along with a beautifully coordinated admixture of droll humour, deadpan and slapstick. - Moonrise Kingdom
- Films that can charm kids and adults in equal measure are rare. This is one of them. - Daily Star
- Moonrise Kingdom remains - for the most part - a gem of a film, and clear indication that Wes Anderson is only getting better with age. - ScreenRant
