Wes Anderson’s romantic comedy follows two 12-year-olds who fall in love and run away together into the wilderness.
On an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, two 12-year-olds fall in love, make a secret pact and run away together into the wilderness. Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Ed Norton and Bruce Willis lend stellar support, conveying a lifetime of concealed hurts with every deadpan-absurd line reading. Anderson’s romantic fantasia is something more complicated and profound—an ever-renewing balance between the hopes of youth and the disappointments of age. D: Wes Anderson, US, 2012, 94m
