On Friday, Jan. 11 at 7:45, Friday Flicks presents Moonrise Kingdom at the Community Centre.
Filmmaker Wes Anderson builds an immaculately designed, emotionally charged bubble around the New England summer of 1965 where first love blooms.
Sam is an orphan at the mercy of foster parents and his Scout troop. Suzy lives in a lighthouse with three younger brothers, lawyer parents and an urge to bust free. She decides Sam is her man. They're both 12.
Sam is a string bean in thick glasses. Suzy is cool enough to wear eyeliner. No one understands when they run away to an island they call Moonrise Kingdom. No one except the director who co-wrote the resonant script with Roman Coppola. He knows their secret hearts and is right there with them. Thanks to this enchanted movie, so are we - caught in the cartwheeling confusion of being young and in love
