Director: Wes Anderson

2012, USA, 94 mins

Summer, 1965, on an island off the coast of New England, two 12-year-olds, Sam and Suzy, meet and make an instant connection. The lonely outsiders become pen-pals for a year before deciding to run away together in what becomes a story of first love, told in Anderson’s unique style. The brilliant ensemble cast includes Bill Murray, Frances McDormand and Ed Norton, all playing quirky characters. This hugely enjoyable tale treats the
troubles of its young protagonists with the director’s usual combination of seriousness and wry humour.

One of the most unique writers and directors in recent times, Wes Anderson has developed a style which is instantly recognisable. If you would like to learn more about Anderson’s filmmaking, then sign up for this hour-long workshop.
