'Moonrise Kingdom'

In Theaters: May 25th

"Wes Anderson is one of the rising powers of American cinema," announced Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Frémaux, who chose Anderson's sublime Moonrise Kingdom to open the prestigious French fest on May 16th. Good choosing, monsieur. Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and Bill Murray excel in the cast of this tale of preteen romance between Jared Gilman and the luminous Kara Hayward during the New England summer of 1965. Anderson (Rushmore) is a one-of-a-kind talent, and Moonrise already stacks up as one of the year's best films.
