Set in the 1960s, Moonrise Kingdom follows 12-year-olds Sam and Suzy (Gilman and Hayward), who flee their cosy New England coastal town in an impulsive gesture of pre-teen romance. Suzy’s panic-stricken mother (McDormand) and seemingly unflustered father (Murray) toothcomb the region for their absent offspring with help from Sam’s Scout leader (Ed Norton) and the local sheriff (Willis). Meanwhile, a ferocious storm is gathering offshore and threatening to turn this quaint island community inside out.
