‘Moonrise Kingdom’ Plot Synopsis
Moonrise Kingdom takes place on the small island of New Penzance in 1965. We meet Suzy and Sam in the middle of a secret year-long correspondence. Although the two twelve-year-olds are outcasts—Suzy is the most beautiful raven in Noah’s arc, and Sam the most unpopular member at the Khaki Scout camp—the two have found comfort in one another. The two run away to start a new life with each other as an impending thunderstorm approaches. The two set out to discover love, independence, and happiness as a formidable posse of anxious parents and local officials follow close behind to bring the missing kids home.
