Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward star as a young couple in love in the quirky Wes Anderson comedy Moonrise Kingdom. The two newcomers may be hitting the big screen for the first time, but they managed to hold their own alongside an all-star cast. We sat down with the young actors at their Cannes Film Festival pressday, and they weighed in on working with some of the biggest names in Hollywood like Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, and Bill Murray. Kara and Jared also told us about their favorite scenes to film, why they weren't intimidated on set, and what their parents thought about some of their more risque scenes. Moonrise Kingdom is in select theaters now and will be opening across the country this month.
The Cannes Film Festival is officially underway! This evening's Moonrise Kingdom will be the first premiere of the week and the cast got together earlier this morning for their photocall. Wes Anderson was surrounded by his cast, including Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, and Ed Norton. The movie actually centers around a love story between two young actors, Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward, who were also on hand for the event.
Much of this crew is like family already, since they've worked together on so many of Wes's movies, and they certainly looked excited to show off their new project in this gorgeous setting. We're on the ground in Cannes, too, bringing you all the action.
