MOONRISE KINGDOM (2012) – AFI Movie Club

With an immaculate ensemble that features Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward and includes Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman and Bob Balaban, Wes Anderson’s MOONRISE KINGDOM (2012) was honored in the year of its release with a 2012 AFI AWARD, recognizing it as one of the most outstanding achievements of the year. According to the official rationale, “MOONRISE KINGDOM exquisitely imagines the bubble of a 1965 New England summer, meticulously capturing a delicate world where operatic emotion underscores an orphan’s journey. Director and co-writer Wes Anderson earns his merit badge as an American original, a storyteller whose loyal community of artists exposes the deepest of feelings with the most deadpan of deliveries. This complexity, combined with a needlepoint detail that has become signature, ensures MOONRISE KINGDOM a seat in the glow of the campfire – where great movies find a way to look back as time goes by.”
