From the director of two-­-time Academy Award-­-nominated filmmaker Wes Anderson, comes Moonrise Kingdom - The story of two 12-­-year olds who fall in love, make a secret pact and run away together into the wilderness.

Set in 1965, on an idyllic New England island called New Penzance, Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two twelve year olds, Sam Shakusky (Jared Gilman) and Suzy Bishop (Kara Hayward), who formed a close bond one summer when they met during a church performance of Noyes Fludde by Benjamin Britten. They remained pen pals over the following year, during which time they plan to meet again and flee their hometowns.

Several days of hiking and camping together in the wilderness sees the pair reach their dream destination, a secluded cove on the island, Moonrise Kingdom. They dance on the beach and their young romance blossoms.

Whilst the local Sheriff (Bruce Willis) leads authorities, to try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-­-shore, and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle. Their island adventure is not at all what they expected.

Warm, whimsical, and poignant, the immaculately framed and beautifully acted, Moonrise Kingdom presents writer/director Wes Anderson at his best and boasts an all star cast -­- Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton and Frances McDormand, join Willis in this story of young love. Available on Blu-­-ray and DVD December 26, 2012.
