We were sitting in the galley last night watching Leaves Of Grass, wondering where the hell has Edward Norton disappeared to and now we know, he’s been off living in the wonderful world of Wes Anderson and who could blame him.
Above is the trailer for Anderson’s latest flick Moonrise Kingdom which follows such hits as The Fantastic Mr Fox and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and has plot that rattles around like so:
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, two twelve-year-olds who 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.
Once again Wes Anderson regular Bill Murray has a starring role alongside Frances McDormand as the young girl’s parents, Edward Norton as a Scout troop leader and Bruce Willis pops plays the local sheriff. What other film will you see this year that’ll top the sight of Bill Murray stripped to the waist armed with a bottle of wine and a hatchet?
