The way Indian life is portrayed is nothing short of remarkable, and is perhaps the highlight of this laid-back, droll film that may not be everyone's cup of tea, but will certainly be appreciated by Anderson fans
Young love is at its peak in Moonrise Kingdom. Sam and Suzy want to be together and will let nothing get in their way. Great appearances from Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and Bill Murray make New Penzance seem like a great place to visit!
Watch the trailer. If you like it, do not miss this movie. The movie is like the trailer but even better. That's pretty rare but very true in this case.
To be honest, while this is one of the best movies I've seen, most people I know wouldn't like it. Also someone with no memories of that era would have to miss a little of the richness of this masterpiece. Realistic in a way but more artistic in that it is a lie that tells the truth. And it does so beautifully.
Moonrise Kingdom is one of those little gems that most everyone with a light heart can enjoy. It has humor, action, suspense, and about everything you could look forward to in a good story. Leave expectations behind and don't compare movies like this to the action-packed block-busters you see all over. It's light-hearted and meant to be that way. I would say it feels like a pop-up book for many parts of it.\n\nWes Anderson directs this film about children growing up in 1960s New England. The main characters meet at a play and make plans to run off together. Hilarity and discovery ensue as nearly the whole (small) community come running after them. This is probably one of Anderson's best works to date.\n\nIt was rated PG-13 for sexual content and smoking, but I would include some violence on to that. Nothing that would keep anyone from watching it and enjoying it. One scene toward the end seems to make people uncomfortable as the two main characters have an intimate moment, but again nothing that would make this movie inappropriate for people over age 13.
