Writer-director Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore, Fantastic Mr. Fox) spins another retro-tastically literate comedy. In this dreamlike diorama of a film, a pair of preteen "lovers" flee their respective homes on a fictitious New England island circa 1965. This sets off a frantic search on the part of the island's quirky residents (including sheriff Bruce Willis, scoutmaster Edward Norton and worried father Bill Murray). Witty, magical and beautifully melancholic, Moonrise Kingdom is vintage Wes Anderson. 94 minutes PG-13.
Times and listings are for Friday 6/23 through Thursday 6/29
