Moonrise Kingdom (Wes Anderson – 2012) B+

It looks very good and has that unique Wes Anderson feel, color and dialogue. It’s a fable of sorts set in a fictitious island about growing up, love and finding a home. We have two young protagonists, a boy scout and a local girl, who decide to run away together. We learn more about the quirky town people, the parents, and the crazy serious scout troops during the search for the kids. We have really good performances from both kids and the excellent cast of actors including Edward Norton, Bruce Willis and Harvey Frances McDormand.
