Moonrise Kingdom Screening

Moonrise Kingdom,

This Wednesday at the Cannes Film Festival, the latest Wes Anderson Film, Moonrise Kingdom, opened the festival to the tune of a standing ovation. Even people who “don’t get” Wes Anderson loved the film.

If you hadn’t heard by now, the film, written by Anderson and Roman Coppola tells the story of a pair of young lovers (newbies Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward) who run away from summer camp. The film is set in 1965, and  is chock-full of a who’s who list of actors: Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Frances McDormand, and Jason Schwartzman.

Interested? Thought so. I’ve got passes to a screening of the film on Thursday, May 31 7:30pm at the AMC River East Theater. DePaul students should send an email to me, Angel Woods, at In the email heading, please put “Moonrise Kingdom Passes” and in the body of the email, a paragraph about a summer camp experience you had (day camps and vacation bible schools count). If you haven’t been to a camp, no worries, tell me about your favorite summer camp movie. Please include your name, DePaul ID #, and major in the email.
