‘Moonrise Kingdom’ is set in a small coastal town by New England in the summer of 1965. It tells the story of two 12-year-old kids who fall in love and run away together. Citizens on the island join forces to look for the 2 kids, while dealing with the looming storm and the twists and turns brought about by trying to find the runaways. Anderson has once again managed to combine big stars with newbies in his new film. The film stars Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances Mc Dormand, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, and Bob Balaban.
