Children's story for adults

This is quite an unusual, quirky, film - a kind of children's story for adults (though you could safely take your junior teens). The story deals with two 12 year olds who run away together and the ensuing manhunt for them. Set in 1965, those of you who grew up through that period will remember a time of innocence and the movie reflects that. The 2 main characters are superb and the movie is rounded out by Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Edward Norton and Harvey Keitel. Well worth watching. 4 stars.
