* ShoutOut: An obvious reference to The Shawshank Redemption when Sam escapes his tent at the start of the film (using an incredibly thin paper material to cover up a hole in a wall), and a more subtle visual allusion to the original Star Wars [[spoiler:during the climax, when Sam and Suzy sidle around the church tower]]. Also, remember that [[Film/DieHard other movie]] where Bruce Willis had to tie a rope to himself to keep from falling from a great height?

Sam is an orphan who has gone through several foster homes, and is now a member of the Khaki Scouts, but has difficulty fitting in. Suzy is living with an incredibly dysfunctional family, where the unfaithful mom's a control freak and the dad is distant, and both deem her "troubled". After a year-long correspondence, they both decide to run away, and the film follows them as they hike across their island - with the police chief, the scoutmaster, Suzy's parents, and Sam's fellow Khaki Scouts all in hot pursuit. While the bulk of the movie is carried by the two leading child actors, the movie has an AllStarCast in the adult supporting roles with BruceWillis, Creator/BillMurray, Creator/EdwardNorton, Creator/FrancesMcDormand, and TildaSwinton.

** During the end credits suite, Sam narrates Alexandre Desplat's music (including name-dropping him at the start), priming the audience of which instruments are coming in and out. When the song and the credits are over, Sam finishes with "Thank you for listening."
