The inseparable power of young love against the reality of middle-aged ennui is at the heart of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom.
The film tells the story of Sam (Jared Gilman) and Suzy (Kara Hayward) who have fallen in love through a one off meeting at a church production of the story of Noah’s ark. The following summer they decide to run away together having only kept in touch via letters. Sam escapes from the scout camp run by the fantastic Ed Norton as Scout Master Ward. Suzy slips unnoticed from her family life with her parents Bill Murray and Frances Mc Dormand too wrapped up in living separate lives to immediately notice. Once the alarm is raised the whole island lends in to help find the missing children and as a result many people are forced to examine their life and it’s meaning.
Best dressed of the fest: Mr. Bill Murray
