: 14+ Why Buy?
Wes Anderson fans will love the quirky filmmaker's latest dramedy -- a 1960s-set story about two misfit tweens who run away with each other -- which is simultaneously atmospheric, loopy, and charming. A great pick to watch with teens. What Parents Should Know:
Parents need to know that "Moonrise Kingdom" -- a 1960s-set dramedy about two misfit tweens who run away with each other -- is, like most of director Wes Anderson's other films, atmospheric and loopy and moving: a mix that might confound younger audiences, even though the movie is about kids. Plus, the stories of their home lives are actually quite sad (one is an orphan; the other feels alone and misunderstood by her family). The young characters kiss each other, feel each other up, and are shown in their underwear. Swearing is pretty minimal, but there's some period-accurate smoking, and one 12-year-old character is served beer by an adult. —Common Sense Media
