Moonrise Kingdom — Where Story Meets Style



In Moonrise Kingdom, Wes Anderson’s style is the perfect match for the story. He uses details to create a believable world, establishes the rules of this fantastical story, and creates a tone that forms a connection between the audience and the characters of Suzy and Sam.

    The world feels lived in, I've never been able to describe it but that's exactly right. I often wonder why I watch this movie so often, and that must be it. It feels alive, like it would exist if I stopped watching.

    This was such a good video. I remember watching this movie when I was younger, but at the time I didn't understand the art of it. Thanks so much for the great video!

    Moonrise Kingdom is one of my favorite films ever and certainly my favorite from Wes Anderson. There are so many layers to the story and it's also a beautiful film that shows his style the best.

    "A time of intense emotion and innocence, that must be destroyed in order to grow up". I've been really depressed for the past year and I won't go into details on the reasons but let me just say this one quote might have finally summed up the way that I feel. I've been trying to remember the last time I was happy, and those were the times where I was so unaware of my self that I didn't have a chance to be miserable. I think he might've been onto something there.

    I have always had this idea that in the scene when Sam and Suzzy talk about what they want to do in the future Sam lies that he wants to travel and stuff. It feels like he says what Suzzy wants to hear in order to be more attractive to her. Is such acting possible from an actor this age and is it even intended?

    Besides the style of the film, I think Moonrise Kingdom is written and acted in the style of Bertolt Brecht. It can be identified as Brecht theater because of the reminders it's a film, as well as the unnatural acting of the actors. He makes the story conveyed clearly by keeping you from getting wrapped up in it. This is called the alienation effect.

    Saw this on TV one night. When I first saw the style I was like "Uhg, this is going to be some pretentious garbage. Ill probably stop watching it five minutes in". Ill let you guess how the next hour and a half of my life was spent.

    "How can a train be lost? It's on rails…" sums up what is perhaps my favorite Wes Anderson film. Personal relevance, in that it's about difficult sibling relationships, but also i dig that it's set on a train. Road trip movies are among my favorites, anything that confines the story's action even more (rails) is a bonus. It's like the photographic challenge of having lenses of only a few fixed focal lengths in the camera bag.
