Endlessly subjective to the kids' fantasy of the world around them, a memory in mind compacted from impressions half-glimpsed, Anderson confects and even perfects a headlong heaven's-to-Etsy esthetic, in hothouse glory.

Orlando Weekly

Anderson's woodsy thought process... elicits a thorough batch of the rainy summer daydreams where most grand childhood adventures and romances are so often had: in heads and hearts, if not in flesh.

All the grounding you need comes from the performances of Hayward and Gilman as the young runaways. They seem to have internalized Anderson's wonky worldview completely.

Deadspin

It's Wes Anderson's dollhouse as a home for wayward boys. Turns out, it's a safe place for adults to hide as well.

The film is frequently funny, always elegant (or mock-elegant), and something that would make Humbert Humbert laugh all the way to his asylum.

To date my favorite Wes Anderson and I don't characterize myself as an Anderson fan.

It's doubtful this will win over any outright Anderson sceptics, but ... this is an exciting reaffirmation of talent.

Wes Anderson's darkest movie yet retains his whimsical sense of humour and Fantastic Mr Fox-styled absurdity.

At its heart, Moonrise Kingdom is a sweet and surprising love story with a healthy twist of typically warped humour.

The Houston native and University of Texas graduate beautifully blends humor and pathos to create what's bound to be one of the best movies of the year.

Anderson's manner becomes a second skin and essential to the script, making Moonrise Kingdom a most comfortable way to watch matters uncomfortable.

Easily among the best of [Anderson's] works, it's a technically marvelous film with spot-on performances, a gorgeously realized score, and impeccable production design.

In the summer of big, expensive superhero flicks, Moonrise Kingdom evokes awe, wonder and the magic of escapism in a much smaller and more precious way.

It's like a picturesque, ride down a long countryside road in autumn bursting with wonderful imagery; richly developed characters complimented by an excellent score that quickly brings you into this small in scope, but big on brilliance effort.

Films that can charm kids and adults in equal measure are rare. This is one of them.

So precise it could be alien, so raw and aching it has to be human. Competes with the best of Anderson. A film to be celebrated.

Maclean's Magazine

Just when you think the story might suffocate in pastel post-modern twee-dom, Anderson will add a a bold stroke of dark comedy or blunt violence.
