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 (Sam and Suzy, played by Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward) who fall in love and are moved to run away into the wilderness together, and the mayhem that follows in the town that tries to find them.
“Rolling Stone” has said, “Hilarious & heartfelt! A dream cast.” Bruce Willis (“Die Hard,” “The Whole Nine Yards” and “The Sixth Sense”) plays the local sheriff, Captain Sharp. Edward Norton (“Fight Club,” “The Illusionist” and “The Incredible Hulk”) is a Khaki Scout troop leader, Scout Master Ward. Bill Murray (“Groundhog Day” and “Lost in Translation”) and Frances McDormand (“Almost Famous” and “Burn After Reading”) portray the young girl’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bishop. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman and Bob Balaban.
It is the latest movie directed by two-time Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Wes Anderson (“The Royal Tenenbaums,” “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” “Rushmore”).
