Moonrise Kingdom

Like many Wes Anderson films, the premise is simple and set around a quirky family. Sam and Suzy, a couple of introverted teens meet during a church performance and become pen pals. Over the course of their correspondence, they fall in love and decide to run away to together. The setting for their elopement is during a Kakhi scouts camp that Sam is attending. The kids manage to flee but with the Kakhi scouts hot on their heels. What ensues is hilarity with stillness and deadpan seriousness. A film that is hard to describe but completely worth watching.
