United States | 2012 | Wes Anderson
One of the most delightful and touching films of 2012, the latest movie by Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Royal Tennenbaums) is a funny, whimsical, beautifully designed paean to adolescence and young love, underscored by the lyrical music of Benjamin Britten (1913-1976). Set on a fictional New England island during the summer of 1965, the film tells of two tweener pen pals—camp cadet Sam and arts-loving Suzy—who make a secret pact to run away together. Their disappearance sends Suzy’s parents (Bill Murray, Frances McDormand), Sam’s scoutmaster (Edward Norton), and the local police chief (Bruce Willis) into a tizzy, and they frantically form a search party.
