Wes Anderson’s much-anticipated new film, Moonrise Kingdom, is a wistful look at the dichotomy between youth’s blind intelligence and adulthood’s cynical detachment told through the eyes of two young outsiders in love.

We asked the young Mr. Stockhausen what goes into making the New England universe in which the two young heroes, Khaki scout Sam and his tween love interest Suzy, inhabit.
