From this review of the movie:
Moonrise Kingdom isn’t a movie about childhood: It’s a movie about how we remember childhood, when confrontations with other kids seemed to have life-or-death stakes, grown-ups spoke about things we didn’t understand or care about, and it really was possible to run away and go on a wild adventure, as long as you brought the proper supplies. The film is precious and adorable, but it isn’t naïve (these kids are becoming sexually aware), and the movie breathes so deep that Anderson even gets a real performance out of Willis (this is his best work in years). Most of Anderson’s previous pictures came from the head; Moonrise Kingdom is one from the heart.
*** NOTE TO NEW MEMBERS ***
Please watch the movie before the meetup. Information to help find the films will generally be posted in the description or in the comments on the webpage.
During the meetup itself, we discuss the movie, but we don't watch it. It's a book club style movie group.
