Wes Anderson’s (Rushmore, The Royal Tennenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom) highly anticipated new film tells the adventurous tale of Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes) and Zero Moustafa (Toni Revolori), a legendary hotel concierge and the lobby boy who becomes his protege.
After a one-night stand with the beautiful Madame D. (Tilda Swinton), Gustave finds himself embroiled in a web of dramatic developments – including the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, a murder accusation, and a battle over an enormous family fortune. With a stellar cast (Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, and Jude Law, among others), Anderson’s latest is a showcase for talent. Framed against the backdrop of a dramatically changing 1920s Europe and inspired by the films of Ernst Lubitsch and Billy Wilder, Grand Budapest uses different aspect ratios and film styles, making it a visual romp that’s stuffed with mood, wit, and unconventional plot points. A charming, sophisticated gem.
The Characters (click photo to enlarge):
"The Grand Budapest Hotel is by far the most headlong comedic affair in Anderson's canon. It's practically Marx Brothers-ian at moments. And Fiennes - who knew he was capable of such wicked, witty timing?!"
--Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Wes Anderson's captivating 1930s-set caper offers a vibrant and imaginative evocation of a bygone era."
-- Justin Chang, Variety
"With "The Grand Budapest Hotel," Wes Anderson is up to his old tricks but with a magnanimous new confidence that feels like a gift."
--Ty Burr, Boston Globe
