Moonrise Kingdom ★★★★
What It’s About: It’s the early ‘70s and a pre-teen boy and pre-teen girl fall in love and run away from their Scout camp and odd home, respectively, to meet up and build a life together on a New England island. A hapless scout leader (Ed Norton), the girl’s odd parents (Bill Murray, Frances McDormind) and a lonely sheriff (Bruce Willis) form a search party to find the young lovers.
What We Like: Since this film is shaping up to be the art house hit of 2012, you may have already seen this when it played in Ann Arbor. If not, get thee to the Levis Commons theater, because this is a really cute, quirky film, filled with great art direction (not since “Punch Drunk Love” has color been used so creatively in a film) and goofy fun, courtesy of the always clever Wes Anderson.
