Moonrise Kingdom Blu-ray Review

I like quirky, independent, not usually mainstream films.

Moonrise Kingdom is one of those films.

Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MoonriseKingdom follows two 12-year-olds who 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 every which way.   Charming screen newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward star alongside Bruce Willis (Die Hard), Academy Award® nominees Edward Norton (American History X) and Bill Murray (Lost in Translation), Academy Award® winners Frances McDormand (Fargo) and Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton), Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore), and Bob Balaban (Gosford Park). Moonrise Kingdom is a movie that critics are calling “extraordinary from start to finish” (Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies).

It started off a little slow for me. It took a little while for the movie to gain momentum. Even when it did, it was a little strange for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some quirky films but this one didn’t really satisfy my quirky taste buds.

I really wanted to enjoy it but maybe I just wasn’t in the mood to watch a Wes Anderson film.

The actors did a great job and the story was kinda cute but there was one part in the movie that wouldn’t be appropriate for young children to view. I wouldn’t really recommend it for 13 and younger unless you’ve already had “The Talk”. They don’t actually do it but I believe it’s implied. It’s entirely up to you but I wouldn’t say this was a family movie.

If you like Wes Anderson films, I say go for it. You’d probably like it but I suggest it as a date night movie not a family movie. If you’re not really into Wes Anderson films, then either watch it with people that are or avoid it altogether.

*I was not compensated for this post although I did receive a complimentary Blu-ray to view. Any and all opinions are my own.*
