Movie review score

What’s it about?
Two kids, driven by love, run away setting a curious chain of events into motion as a New England community rush to find them.

What did we think?
If Oscars were awarded to the best movie rather than the most popular then the next would go to Moonrise Kingdom. I’m still smiling.

Delightfully quirky, Moonrise Kingdom is a triumph. It’s curious, off-beat and has so many layers you may not fully appreciate it until much later as you relive the adventures mentally and realise the depth of the interactions.

I DARE you to not fall in love with this film.


One Response so far.

  1. It speaks volumes that despite having Bruce Willis, Ed Norton, Bill Murray, Harvey Keitel, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton in the film you barely notice them. Or, to be more accurate, you don’t overly care. The two young lovers steal the show with Kara Hayward’s depiction of a realistic Wednesday Adams simply sublime.
