Bruce Willis' 'Moonrise Kingdom' to open Cannes Film Festival

London, Sat, 10 Mar 2012 ANI

London, Mar 10 (ANI): Bruce Willis and Ed Norton's latest movie 'Moonrise Kingdom' will open the Cannes Film Festival on May 16.


The film was directed and co-written by Wes Anderson, and also stars Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton.


Set in the 1960s, the movie is about a young pair of lovers who run away from home, prompting a huge search party.


Cannes organisers said Moonrise Kingdom was a "tormented and surprising story of children and adults during the stormy days of the summer of 1965".


Director Anderson co-wrote the screenplay with Roman Coppola - director Francis Ford Coppola's son.


Anderson is best known for the movies 'The Royal Tenenbaums' and 'The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou'.


"Wes Anderson is one of the rising powers of American cinema, to which he brings a highly personal touch, particularly in 'Moonrise Kingdom'," the BBC quoted Thierry Fremaux, the Festival's General Delegate, as saying.


He added that the movie is "a testimony to the creative freedom in which he continues to evolve".


'Moonrise Kingdom' will open in French cinemas on the same day that it will be screened in Cannes. (ANI)
