Moonrise Kingdom

I went into this movie without having seen a trailer or even really knowing much about the plot. I did know it boasted a star studded cast headlined by Bruce Willis, Bill Murray and Edward Norton. Though, it soon became apparent that they all take a backseat to the quirky young star Jared Gilman. The outcast 12-year-old runs away from his scout troupe with his equally odd crush, played by Kara Hayward. The interactions between the two misfits balance on the edge of incredibly awkward, hilarious and adorable all at once.

Easily my personal favorite movie from this year and I give it 4 ½ out of 5 Beach balls.

  1. Very impressed with your movie review blog! I do not hand out compliments to complete strangers very often. I try to keep a low profile in order to avoid becoming famous, but I figured I would take a chance…you only live life once, right? (and if you live it good enough, one life is all you need…but I digress) Again, well done on your reviews, and I look forward to reading more.
