Comedy-drama “Moonshine Kingdom” is now available through Suddenlink Video on Demand (VOD).
Director Wes Anderson tells the story of two preteens who fall in love and run away together. As authorities try to hunt them down, the peaceful island community is turned upside down. Bruce Willis and Edward Norton star. Bill Murray, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton have supporting roles.
In his review this spring, Austin American-Statesman film reviewer Charles Ealy says director Anderson “beautifully blends humor and pathos to create what’s bound to be one of the best movies of the year.”
