The Flick: Moonrise Kingdom
The Skinny: Visionary indie filmmaker Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums) delivers a beautifully acted gem filled with the sort of flawed characters, dry humor and magical realism that has become his trademark, but with more heart than any of his previous movies.
The Players: Newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward star as Sam Shakusky and Suzy Bishop, two children with very different backgrounds who keep a pact they made the year before and run away together to a magical island they call Moonrise Kingdom. Anderson regulars Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman also star, along with Edward Norton, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton and Francis McDormand.
