THE OPENING FILM at the opening night of Cannes Film Festival this year in May, “Moonrise Kingdom” is the newest Wes Anderson movie and, according to some, the best. The New York Timescalled it “a journey that part quest, part romance, with a touch of film noir and a hint of the French New Wave.” Indeed, the film is very childlike—but make no mistake, it’s not childish. Rather, “Moonrise Kingdom” is extremely stylized and self-aware (as all Anderson films tend to be), but not without the key elements of good writing and good acting. With two Oscar winners on cast (Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton), three Oscar nominees (Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Harvey Keitel), and two badass dudes (Bruce Willis, Jason Schwartzmann), Anderson’s got some serious acting chops on payroll here (and don’t forget, he’s got an Oscar nom under his belt already, too). If the Times review doesn’t sway you, take a look at its pretty incredible 94% average on Rotten Tomatoes, and then we’ll talk. So, will it pick up a nom for Best Picture? It was very well received at Cannes, but of course there will be plenty more contenders as the Oscar season picks up. But we see this quirky little romantic story making the cut come February.
