Wes Anderson warmly embraces the slightest of plots—in the 1960s, a precocious pair of adolescent lovers go on the run together, whipping their repressed island community into a frenzy—and plunges over the side of a waterfall with it. Anderson coaxes an all-star cast into strong, mannered supporting performances: Bruce Willis spoofs his own damaged tough-guy shtick; Frances McDormand and Bill Murray play the parents with a poky, amicably antagonistic sizzle; Edward Norton is a sublime pleasure as a good-hearted scoutmaster. It’s probably Anderson's best movie since Rushmore.
