Moonrise Kingdom

In 1965, an orphaned boy scout and his new-found girlfriend (Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward) run away from home, which prompts a search. This will no doubt satisfy die-hard fans of Wes Anderson who has made another dollhouse of a movie, one that offers meticulously designed scenes that mirror Anderson’s sepia-toned artistic vision and fondness for nostalgia. As always, themes of childhood and the relationship between generations are explored ‚Äď often with predictable results. Still enjoyable, especially thanks to the cast, and the director’s unwavering sympathy for his young characters.

2012-U.S. 94 min. Color. Directed by Wes Anderson. Screenplay: Wes Anderson, Roman Coppola. Music: Alexandre Desplat. Cast: Bruce Willis (Sharp), Edward Norton (Randy Ward), Bill Murray (Walt Bishop), Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman… Bob Balaban, Harvey Keitel.
