  • Critic Reviews
    "The paint-tube-pure hues of MOONRISE KINGDOM evoke picture books but also reinforce subtle connections between the characters....MOONRISE KINGDOM has a spontaneity and yearning that lend an easy comic rhythm..."
    Film Comment

    "[B]eguiling and endearing....[The] new film, in radiant live-action, is very much its own creation..."
    Wall Street Journal

    "[A] warm and funny fable about kids on the cusp....Here the writer-director's tendency toward the allegorical casts a magical spell with Anderson finding a near perfect balance between the humanism and the surreal that imprints all of his work..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "MOONRISE KINGDOM breezes along with a beautifully coordinated admixture of droll humor, deadpan and slapstick."
    New York Times

    "[T]he hilarious and heartfelt MOONRISE KINGDOM is a consistent pleasure. By evoking the joys and terrors of childhood, it reminds us how to be alive."
    Rolling Stone

    4 stars out of 5 -- "The director of quirky fare with a rabid cult-like following has made a charming, magical and really funny new work about two unique young kids discovering love...it's the director's most accessible movie yet."
    Box Office

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The success of MOONRISE KINGDOM depends on its understated gravity....What happens in a fantasy can be more involving than what happens in life, and thank goodness for that."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Literate, melancholy and magical, MOONRISE KINGDOM is quintessential Wes Anderson..."
    USA Today

    Entertainment Weekly

    4 stars out of 5 -- "The watery colours and artful compositions delight in details....The return of a distinct voice in wry, refined and high style."
