QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: Two 1960s era 12-year-old kids run off to be together and try to avoid the various adults who are searching for them.
PLOT:
It's 1965 and 12-year-old orphan Sam Shakusky (JARED GILMAN) has had enough of the Camp Ivanhoe scouts and has gone AWOL on New Penzance Island off the coast of New England, much to the dismay of Scout Master Ward (ED NORTON) who otherwise runs a tight ship. Enlisting the aid of the local sheriff, Captain Sharp (BRUCE WILLIS), Ward and his scouts scour the island, but can't find Sam.

Little do they know that he's run off to meet fellow 12-year-old Suzy Bishop (KARA HAYWARD), daughter of lawyers Laura (FRANCES McDORMAND) and Walt (BILL MURRARY) and older sister to three younger brothers. Suzy dislikes all of them, particularly her mother who she knows is having an affair with Sharp.

Unaware that a storm of historic proportions is about to pound the area, but with Sam prepared for pretty much anything like any good scout, the two young lovers strive to get away from their lives, all while the others continue their search for them.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of films by director Wes Anderson, they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For sexual content and smoking.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
