Wes Anderson had been away from live-action film making for half a decade before the release of Moonrise Kingdom in 2012. And while he earned an Oscar nomination and no shortage of acclaim for his stop motion adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox, Moonrise Kingdom proved to be something even more special. And well worth the wait. A mix of romance, comedy and drama, Moonrise Kingdom is set in 1965 and centres on a pair of twelve-year-olds who decide to run away together. Cue the inevitable search party, featuring the likes of Bill Murray, Bruce Willis and Frances McDormand, and the scene is set for one of Anderson’s trademark off-the-wall pieces of cinema. Quirky, funny and with a real identity that sets it apart, Moonrise Kingdom is an excellent film, and one that lingers around your brain long after the credits have rolled.
Tickets £6 on the door, wine and nibbles provided by Isfield Village Hall.
