Moonrise Kingdom

May 25, 2012

Wes Anderson’s upcoming Moonrise Kingdom (due out May 25) is all about kids—specifically, a 1960s-era Khaki Scout who runs away with the summer fling girl of his dreams, accidentally sparking a desperate manhunt that consumes a small town. But as with so many of Anderson’s comedies, it’s also about adults who behave like kids, and this clip does a fine job of establishing that dynamic. Here Tilda Swinton’s imperious Social Services administrator arrives to both take stock of the investigation and bitch out Bruce Willis’ local Sheriff and Edward Norton’s scoutmaster, revealing them to be the small, feckless little boys that they are. Of course, anyone would be feckless when faced with a hat and coat combination like that.
