Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, two twelve-year-olds fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore — and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle.
If you are looking for a full review of Moonrise Kingdom, you can check out my review on Outnumbered 3 to 1 (where I also write), here I want to give you some tips from the Khaki Scouts of America and their Guide to Protecting the Community! Moonrise Kingdom centers around the troops on New Penzance, here are their best tips on keeping everyone safe and secure!
An essential part to protecting any community is to have a recognizable uniform. This informs others you are an official authority figure. The Khaki Scouts are in tip-top shape in their uniforms, they include: beret, handkerchief, socks, boots and colorful badges that adorn their khaki suits and tells others about their successes. Having distinctive outfits shows others they have confidence, especially to the people of New Penzanze, making them trust in the Scouts protection.
The Khaki Scouts build a treehouse that sits very high in the sky. This is in order for them to see everything on the island. They can always be on the lookout for trouble can see danger from miles away. In conclusion, in order to really know what is going on in the community, one must have an excellent overview of the surrounding land. And in addition to building a tall tower for operations, it is also very important to stock up with the essentials: playing cards, snacks, and pillows are a must.
The Khaki Scouts mean business when they are protecting their community. They use effective gadgets and threatening weapons to ward off any opposing forces! The best supplies to have on hand are:
- special tools for unzipping locked tents
- an array of weapons (including guns, axes, and nail-bolted bludgeons)
- a motorcycle to ride to the scene of a crime in a speedy fashion (don’t forget this one)
Once the Khaki Scouts realize that Sam and Suzy are meant to be together, they turn to Cousin Ben (Jason Schwartzman) for extra help. Cousin Ben is not only related to one of the scouts, but he also works at Fort Lebanon, the bigger summer camp. His experience and skills come in very handy as he leads the scouts on their secret mission. In times of trouble, it is always a good idea to turn to trusted family and close friends.
The Khaki Scouts are on full alert to help the community during the hectic flood. They work together as a group and a team to lift people out from the rain and bring them safely to shelter. Instead of panicking in a tough environment, the Scouts remain alert and are dedicated to helping the people. No matter how extreme a situation becomes, one must remember to join with a team to do whatever it takes to protect the community.
