Item Details

Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, tells the story of 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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It's very funny and quirky. But I don't recommend it for a younger audience due to some content. Perhaps Grade 6 and up.

Wes Anderson got it right in this one (so missed it in The Life Aquatic). Great quirky little movie that I will watch again some day.

Very strange movie with a few interesting features and plot devices. If you have time to see a movie, try something else, unless you really like weird.

For the first 10 minutes I was not sure what I was watching. But as the films progressed I was captivated by the style in which the story was told. And it was a pretty unique style too. Teenage love normally does not interest me but this film is one exception. This is a very enjoyable comedy. The feel-good ending is a bonus.

Very quirky. It was odd but I enjoyed it. The acting was very good especially the kids.

Quirky movie. A drama-comedy I guess. Bruce Willis etc. were so serious, they were amusing.

one of the best movies I have seen in a long time, a gorgeous story about two (mature) 12 year olds and their burgeoning love for each other as they escape on an adventure

A few funny scenes, but the flat, deadpan, characteristic Anderson style makes it hard to care about the characters, which makes a "coming of age" movie difficult.

Walt Bishop (to Scout Master Randy Ward of the Khaki Scouts): "Hold it RIGHT THERE! You're not leaving this island! Our daughter has been abducted by one of these beige lunatics!"
