They wind up being pursued by a Scoutmaster (Norton) and his troop. While Anderson's work is often compared with European directors, Anderson, in an interview with today's (Tuesday) USA Today maintained that the subject of Moonrise Kingdom "makes for a very American film. ... It's even [like] Norman Rockwell.
