Overview


Moonrise Kingdom is set in 1965 on an island off the coast of New England.

It's the end of the summer and the seasonal hurricanes loom on the horizon.

Set against this background is a romance between two twelve-year-olds: Lucy Bishop, (who lives on the island with her parents [Bill Murray and Frances McDormand] and three younger brothers) and Sam (an orphan who is camping on the island with the Khaki Scout troop).

They are pursued by the local sheriff (Bruce Willis) and the scout troop leader Scout Master Ward (Edward Norton).

The follies of youth are matched by the compromises of age, and as the conflict between the generations escalates, the hurricane breaks upon the island putting all the characters at risk...

    I purchased this book because I knew it was the screenplay for the movie "Moonrise Kingdom".

    I admire the movie; I own the DVD; and, I was curious about the process of getting the story from script to film. As a writer, I was amazed at the sparseness of the script that produced such a lush and nuanced movie.

    Recommended for anybody who is interested in screeplays/writing/process, but not so much for folks who wanted Moonrise Kingdom, the Novel.
