Plot: Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two twelve-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 more ways than anyone can handle.

Moonrise Kingdom Review - A sparkling little gemSep 23, 2012News \rMoonrise kingdom has a fairytale flavour to it and it sparkles like a little gem with it many facets of childhood, adolescent love, loss, loneliness and the simplest human need to be wanted and loved.\rThe movie is shot on a picturesque island preparing for a storm. The storm also breaks loose in the lives of two tweens, a troubled orphan boy with no friends but an expert scout and a girl whom he makes friends or rather falls in love with immediately. They become pen pals and decide to run away and live together on an enchanted part of the island. Of course, they get caught; the boy has to be taken to a juvenile home. The lovers cannot bear to be separated and the storm plays a role in bringing the story to a close. There are stories about the adults woven into this story too, the dysfunctional marriage of the girl's parents, the lonely Sheriff in love with the girl's mother, the enthusiastic Scout Leader. All this just get woven into the main story effortlessly while never taking away attention from the main story.\rThere is a sense of impending catastrophe that never leaves you from the start of the movie and makes you hold your breath till the last scene. The movie is sweetly funny at all times and yet the underlying loneliness of the orphaned child who wears his mother's pearl brooch along with his scout badges and the confusion of the girl who seeks refuge in her books is never lost on us. Their romance is naive and sweet and makes us yearn for the innocence of our own childhoods.\r A really beautiful movie you must not miss.\r \r \r \rSmita Vyas Kumar Moonrise Kingdom Review - A sparkling little gem Sep 23, 2012
