Hey Lovelies, 

Being young and in love is something that is always reflected as an innocent act. Yet, in Wes Anderson’s world in Moonrise Kingdom, two 12-year-olds love causes adventures that give every audience member a new appreciation for the world and the wilderness. All of which that has been re-released in a brand-new Blu-Ray format, as of today.

Launching the careers of Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward, as Sam and Suzy, the feature has one of the best all-star casts around. Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand and Bruce Willis lead the familiar names appearing in this tale of Sam and Suzy’s secret pact to run away and stay in love forever. Yet, their world is changing when a storm brews that causes them to rethink everything they knew.

When you feature a cast like this, all led by an amazing director, there is nothing that Moonrise Kingdom can’t do. It is a feature that takes you back to your childhood. It is a feature that shows the pressures of first love and growing up. It shows that the world is always changing and the plans we have are forever changing. All in the beautiful way Anderson can only do.

Unlike his previous features, this is the one that seems like the most innocent. It has the darkness that blends with the light throughout, but it works. Anderson’s take on the Scouts teens going about their own adventure and experiencing the world for themselves, instead of listening to what is expected of them from their leader and the police.

Comedy is the beauty in this feature though. There is a manner in the film that shows even in the darkest of times, there is nothing that the world can stop you from dreaming or aiming for. Plus, with a cast like this, they all know what to do, even years on, to make you smile. Wes Anderson just knows what to do as a filmmaker to make us happy, which is all we can ask for.
