Moonrise Kingdom

When adolescents Sam and Suzy (Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward) run away from their homes to scout the trails of New Penzance Island, they are actually running toward a world full of joy and wonder where they are understood and loved, a desire expressed through their whimsical first romance. The purity and innocence of the world they create for themselves contrasts with their broken homes, which are troubled by affairs and rejection. An impending flood underscores the harm caused by these betrayals, but when it strikes, the local church becomes an ark offering salvation from the water and a chance to restore broken covenants. - Evan Cogswell
