You can always recognize a Wes Anderson movie. His style and theme are very distinct. His films are mostly about a dysfunctional family (Royal Tenenbaums, Darjeeling Limited). The movies are always a bit weird, somewhat absurd and melodramatic. In addition, Wes Anderson usually workes with actors he has already worked with before. Moonrise Kingdom is no exception in all this.

Moonrise Kingdom is set on a small island off the coast of New England. Besides the few families who live on the island there is an island-police and a scouting camp. One day the teens Suzy and Sam decide to run away together. Sam fled the scouting camp and Suzy runs away from home. While the two discover what they really feel for each other is the island in full search for the two teens.

Again Wes Anderson has delivered a wonderful comedy full with dramatic elements. Great acting, and brilliant funny dialogues provide a good dose of humor. Despite all fixed elements which can be found in the film, it is definitely not boring. Indeed it could well be his best film so far can be.

Rating 4 out of 5
