Wes Anderson scores another hit with Moonrise Kingdom

Moonrise Kingdom follows two runaways in love as they attempt to escape their lives; Sam (Jared Gilman) from his Khaki Scout Troup and Suzy (Kara Hayward) from her misunderstanding family. The film also stars Wes Anderson regulars such as Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman, along with Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton.

I love all things Wes Anderson, but I was a bit apprehensive about this film since Roman Coppola’s storyline and the cast were very kid-centric. Luckily I was pleasantly surprised. The actors pulled it off, and it made me just as happy to see this as Anderson’s previous work. In addition to being strong actors, they accurately showed their childlike view of the world while still addressing some very adult themes.

Overall both children were great, but the standout performance by far came from Gilman. He was believable as a loner, looking for acceptance and a family of his own. As a friend of mine pointed out, Suzy was the Margot Tenenbaum type, complete with green eyeshadow. I didn’t catch that at first, but he was right, though I think Hayward was successful at putting her own spin on it.

See Moonrise Kingdom if you enjoy subtle, dialogue-driven movies with a dash of humor and dysfunction.
