Here’s the trailer for Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom. Kids very seriously, dramatically in love? Check. Tan-hued, immaculately-choreographed movie sets? Check. Mod overload? Check. Jason Schwartzman as some sort of camp-counselor-deputized-priest? Naturally.
Two twelve-year-olds meet at a New England summer camp in 1965 on an island. She — (possibly) an eccentric, impossibly stylish. He — paints nudes, a strange and very very serious little man. Big love! Also, Bill Murray! And Tilda Swinton, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, etc etc. Back to big love:
“… two twelve-year-olds fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities 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. “
It opens May 25. I’m getting a serious Pierrot le Fou vibe.
