On an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, two twelve-year-olds fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore, and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle.

....where white is black and black is white, where the adult is the child and the child is the adult. Now where oh where have I seen this before?

Sweet, charming and yes, a little oddly awkward, this quiet movie is a great watch for fans of the TV show A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Delightful!

When I daydream, my mind surely goes to a place just like this. Wes Anderson presents a wonderfully fantastical and extraordinary story in which love prevails for two 12-year old outcasts. Using tones similar to a faded Polaroid, the scenes hone in on colour palette that is typically Wes. And the music does not disappoint either- from a catchy French pop tune, to dramatic orchestral scores that foreshadow each new crisis. Strikingly weird, curiously charming, and an ode to all adventurers with a purpose.
P.s. I'm a raven.

Watch Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, and Bill Murray step out of their usual roles to find two kids who elope. This movie is touching and intimate as it portrays young love so purely and innocently, but with an eloquency only Wes Anderson can give it.

Wes Anderson at his idiosyncratic best. Attractively eccentric, an easy comic rhythm, beautifully acted and beautifully captured. The film gives you the feeling as if we are viewing the events through Suzy's binoculars or reading the story under the covers by a flashlight. And, it's a great love story of precocious children before becoming damaged adults. Don't miss it.

WOW! This film was delightful in its quirkiness and total originality. It is like an adult "kid movie" in that it was actually FUN to view. Should bring a smile to all ages.

An interesting, quirky film. An engaging, and completely unpredictable story. Wes Anderson's best, so far, I think. Good performances all around, and the camera work is a joy in itself.
