Moonrise Kingdom is the new movie directed by two-time Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Rushmore). Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two 12-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 every which way. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff, Captain Sharp. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader, Scout Master Ward. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bishop. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Bob Balaban; and introduces Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as Sam and Suzy, the boy and girl.

The child actors aren't perfect, but the incongruity between Anderson's peculiar dialogue makes for funny and heartwarming scenes. Bruce Willis might seem completely out of his element as a small town cop with no Germans to blow up, but he still manages to carry his role well. The biggest gripe I have with the movie is how rushed it feels... particularly character qualities that aren't fleshed out properly.
Overall another good addition to the Wes collection and far better than most movies, but not his best.
Overall, this is a fun movie. I hope they do well with the awards ceremonies.
