After the excellent stop-motion animation Fantastic Mr Fox, Wes Anderson returns to live action with this brilliant, whimsical love story. 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 offshore, and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle.

‘As funny, bittersweet and as distinct as you’d expect from Wes Anderson, a director who helps you know you are not alone.’ – Nev Pierce, Empire ****
