I'm not sure what is the message of this movie. I appreciate the cinematic techniques (though I do not get what's all the panning for). Coming of age story that I'm not sure if it's about love or life as a whole. The kid actors are... I cannot even...

two weard kids find eachother, and it seems like they were made for eachother. The movie doesn't ressemble anything thats coming out lately, and it's refreshing to watch something i haven't seen before (reminded me a little of "Flipped", but just a little ;) Loved it!

A quirky, colorful spark of Anderson's creativity.

When I think of Wes Anderson, I think of three things. Quirkiness, Colorfulness and Fascination.

In his new tale of young love, Wes Anderson brings possibly his best movie to date.
The direction shows us what is really missing in our world today: a true young love, like the one between our central characters Suzie and Sam.
One may look at this movie and think: aww, cute.
And it is. But I think what Wes Anderson and everyone in the cast was thinking and going for during the production is an attempt to show appreciation and acceptance of a love that in that case would be frowned upon. It is a beautiful telling, filled with mature, as well as childish strokes of brilliance, an excellent depiction of an isolated 'kingdom' of an island and that typical Wes Anderson trademark, all Anderso...

Moonrise Kingdom review

Philosophical, colorfully gorgeous, funny, excellently casted, and dark all in one mix. Brilliant direction, splendid soundtrack, lush cinematography, spectacular performances and an enticing screenplay makes this one of the best of the year and from the director. It starts off with a missing skilled Khaki Scout named Sam Shakusky (Jared Gilman) who meets-up with temperamental Suzy Bishop (Kara Hayward). Scout Master Ward (Edward Norton) informs Captain Sharp (Bruce Willis) while the parents of Suzy, Walt (Bill Murray) and Laura (Frances McDormand), worry about their daughter. So many stories interwoven masterfully with comical moments. The kids were sincere and believable which makes the film more endearing.

The movie has bountiful quotable and insightful lines: Captain Sharp -...

Young love, wes anderson style.

Another delicious piece of trademark Wes Anderson whimsy. Moonrise Kingdom is a sweet, funny, melancholic film about first love. Once again Anderson has rounded up a great cast, with Edward Norton delivering an against-type but hilarious performance. Tilda Swinton once again proves that she is one of, if not the best, working actress today by taking a small role and making it memorable. Beautifully filmed, with accute attention to detail, a lovely soundtrack, and all of Anderson's typical flourishes. Moonrise Kingdom ranks as one of the best films of the year and also one of the directors best films. However, if you don't like his style now, Kingdom is not for you, as this is himself at his most unrestrained. Charming and lovely, Moonrise Kingdom is a delightful treat.

Don't worry, when the nominations are officially announced, that's when things really heat up. Last year Drive seemed to be the film everyone was angry didn't get enough recognition. Hopefully Moonrise Kingdom isn't overlooked - it's still my top film at this point with the only real challengers being Zero Dark Thirty and Les Miserables (both of which I'll see this week).

Chris. I truly cannot get over how much I enjoyed this film. I will be watching the Awards solely  to see how this film does. If it doesn't do well, FilmCrave should have an yearly award vote.

I'm holding out - as I have a sneaking suspicion it's going to get a Criterion Collection release at some point in the future. But I agree with you - so far it's still my favorite movie of the year as well.

Picked it up on blu-ray last night. It looks fantastic. And it still remains my favorite movie of the year so far.
