Director/co-writer Wes Anderson teams with screenwriter Roman Coppola for this period comedy-drama set in the 1960s, in which a pair of young lovers (Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward) from an island off the New England coast head for the hills and throw their small town into a frenzy. Bruce Willis co-stars with Bill Murray, Edward Norton, and Frances McDormand. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
The film was a Wes Anderson film. We watched it all the way through, and having grown up in the 60s, it had some light moments. However, Universal Pictures has eliminated the "extras" on the DVD because it is only a rental; if you want to look at the extras (which in some films is needed to get a better understanding), Universal states you must buy the film. I suspect that a rare few fans of Wes Anderson will do this; I won't. And, in fact, I will not buy from studios with such policies.
Do not waste a second of your life thinking this movie has a slow start...hoping it gets better as it gets in the story... it doesn't... If you have time to waste and want something that will just completely burn over 90 minutes of your free time that you could be using to watch grass grow or paint to dry then by all means help yourself...
Moonrise Kingdom is a rare treat of artistic integrity and entertainment. It left me feeling an unusual sense of hope and possibility. No one escapes the vulnerability of the all seeing lens, where both individuals and organizations are portrayed with their weaknesses and foibles along with their desire and ability to create good in the world. I like it.
I watched the full movie here ----------> http://tiny.cc/movie784 (that link is for those who haven't watched it yet) Anyway, what can I say? this movie definitely made me love the characters and I can relate!! Just some minor plots that are ridicuous I didnt like.. anyway, 5/5 stars for this movie!!
I was anticipating a wonderful flick with the calliber of actors in it but I couldn't sit through the whole movie. Even my teenage daughter was uncomfortable in certain parts. Not our style of movie and I will definitely read reviews in advance before ordering future films.
This has to be one of weirdest movies I have seen. It takes a good while to even figure out what is going on and who the main characters are, and then it just didn't seem worth the effort. I wouldn't recommend it.
