My Review:

Moonrise Kingdom stars Frances McDormand, Ed Norton, Bill Murray and Bruce Willis.  Directed by Wes Anderson, it has that campy feel he’s so famous for.  This is a movie lover’s movie.  Two misfit 12 year olds find each other and strike up a childhood romance.  When they run away together, this affects the whole community.  Everything about this film is visual candy: the costumes, the colors, and the sets.  The story is touching, sweet, and funny. The acting is wonderful – the characters are believable and likeable.  This is one of my favorites so far this year.  Highly recommended.
