The year is 1965. This is the island of New Penzance. Sam Shakusky and Suzy Bishop run away together, pursued by a troop of Khaki Scouts, Suzy’s parents, the local police captain, Social Services and the region’s most destructive meteorological event of the second half of the twentieth century.
Screening with Fantastic Mr Fox in Cardiff’s Norwegian Church as part of the Roald Dahl On Film season. This historic building has both a unique connection to Roald Dahl himself and a surprising resemblance to one of Moonrise Kingdom’s key locations.
