Moonrise Kingdom
Directed by Wes Anderson
Starring Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward, Edward Norton, Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Bob Balaban and Harvey Keitel
Release Date: May 16, 2012

French New Wave director Jean-Luc Godard, a powerful influence in cinema and pop culture from the 1960s onward thanks to his radical films, depicted in some of his films the need for the adolescent or youth to maintain their autonomy in the process of society attempting to crush it and mold it for their own purposes.

In the video they talk about their experiences working on the set of Moonrise Kingdom and about Anderson’s directing style. You get to see what it was like on the set of the film. The gorgeous simplicity of the set pieces and the beautiful locations that Anderson chose is exactly why Moonrise Kingdom is one of my top ten highly anticipated films of 2012.
