Moonrise Kingdom Spotlight

Welcome to Episode 80 of the Back Lot 605 Podcast, the “Premier South Dakota Movie Podcast”! As we enter our third week of our Summer Camp mini-series we explore the 2014 Wes Anderson film, Moonrise Kingdom. To do so we are joined by The Criterion Break and Killer Countdown co-host Blake Ginithan. What are your thoughts on this coming of age dramedy? Are you a fan of the work of Wes Anderson?

Moonrise Kingdom is written and directed by Wes Anderson. The film stars Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand, and introduces Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward. The film follows orphaned Sam (Gilman) and problem child Suzy (Hayward) as the two pre-teens fall in love and decide to run away. Sam’s scout group and Suzy’s parents start a search party for the two lovebirds as they trek through the wooded, New England lakeside.


Furthermore, we introduce two new segments to the podcast. We preview some of the feature films we are excited to watch in the next week. We also review some of our recent new release watches, including Capone and Spaceship Earth.
