SUMMARY: Moonrise Kingdom can be described as offbeat, stylized, and humorous. The plot revolves around teenage love, social relations, and falling in love. The main genres are drama, comedy, and independent. In terms of style, Moonrise Kingdom features an all-star cast and stars an ensemble cast. In approach, it is realistic. It is set, at least in part, on an island and in a small town. Moonrise Kingdom is located in New England. It takes place in the 1960s. It is well suited for a date night.
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two twelve-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 more ways than anyone can handle. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl's parents. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the boy and girl. -- (C) Focus Features
