Wes Anderson's 'Moonrise Kingdom' is a delightfully original, sweet story that you'll deeply enjoy!
Wes Anderson has created some of the most original and delightful pictures this decade. In 'Moonrise Kingdom' we see a small Massachusetts town with some of the most different characters. You have old guys telling you about the town, goodie-good boy scout troop leaders, annoying mothers, cute teenagers in love, and funny law men. Young lovers Sam and Suzy leave their old lives to live in 'Moonrise Kingdom' out in the wilderness. Sam is an avid boy scout who lives with foster parents and has trouble fitting into the weirdest society imaginable. Suzy is an unhappy girl with emotional problems. As their families learn about their rushed decision, they hire the entire town to look for them as many people including the police, boy scouts, and social services. Many big actors such as Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, and Tilda Swinton give delightful performances that are naturally hilarious and unique. Wes Anderson's originality is so superb and creates a new type of storytelling that is creative, hilarious, and heartfelt. He ties in good themes of acceptance, love, and unity to make this sweet story have heart. The production design makes this story even more original that it's hard to explain. The New England town contains different architecture, beautiful nature, and goofy clothes that will make you pleased. Other elements such as music and directing make the film complete. When a creative story is written the film should be celebrated. Wes Anderson delivers a soulful and sweet story that will entertain you and help the art of cinema evolve its creative history.
