January 26, 2018
Eccentric and sweet and director/writer Wes Anderson's best live-action contribution since The Royal Tenenbaums.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
January 9, 2018
Anderson's movie is a musical, composed work about how all of the instruments play together; what it achieves is a rare harmony of form, tone, and subject.
August 29, 2017
Moonrise Kingdom makes a winning appeal to the precious joys of the pre-teen imagination circa 1965.
July 1, 2016
'Moonrise Kingdom' magically recreates a child's-eye view of the early 1960s, bringing back memories of tents, tree houses, campfires, cub scouts, innocence, and first kisses.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
June 10, 2016
It is no insult to tag Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom as "charming" or "enchanting." Those qualities, sadly missing in this vertigo-inducing era of big screen alien invasions and superhero exploits, are here, three times filled and overflowing.

This is the work of an auteur - confident, but understated; beautiful, but heartbreaking; intoxicating, but sobering.

It's funny, it's playful, it's full of nostalgic blasts and period trappings, but most of all it is loving: accepting of the headstrong kids determined to find their place in the world...
October 6, 2015
The script may be the film's greatest strength: the movie is probably Anderson's most quotable.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10

Moonrise Kingdom may be a light summer entrée, but it rewards us by serving up a rich romantic fantasy and isn't afraid to share its sweet, beating young heart.
May 3, 2015
It's Anderson's most carefully constrained, painstakingly overdesigned movie, yet also his most gushing and emotionally accessible.
April 14, 2014
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.
August 3, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
August 3, 2013
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.

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.

June 17, 2013
The film is frequently funny, always elegant (or mock-elegant), and something that would make Humbert Humbert laugh all the way to his asylum.
May 24, 2013
Anderson delivers a magnificent blend of artistry, humor and emotional resonance.

March 21, 2013
To date my favorite Wes Anderson and I don't characterize myself as an Anderson fan.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
March 4, 2013
It's doubtful this will win over any outright Anderson sceptics, but ... this is an exciting reaffirmation of talent.
March 4, 2013
Wes Anderson's darkest movie yet retains his whimsical sense of humour and Fantastic Mr Fox-styled absurdity.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
January 27, 2013
One of the ten best films of 2012.
