Young love on a rocky shore — don’t miss the next Murphy Library movie

Posted on: September 7, 2014

If you’ve been hungry for the sight of a Northeastern coastline try to see Moonrise Kingdom, the next Murphy Library comedy/drama made along the edges and forests of Rhode Island. A young boy and girl fall in love and run away as chaos ensues and the town searches for them.

The library will show Moonrise Kingdom Thursday at 6 p.m. It is rated PG-13, runs 94 minutes and has a wonderful cast: Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Bruce Willis and Frances McDormand. The two kids are good also.

Director Wes Andersen, who made The King’s Speech, co-wrote the screenplay with Roman Coppola, son of Francis Ford Coppola about two children who don’t fit in. The film offers surprises, funny parts and is often moving.

In spite of the Rhode Island shore you won’t get homesick for the South. Hank Williams’ songs follow the travelers, along with music by Benjamin Britten and Mozart.

Call the library at 837-2417.
