The Grand Budapest Hotel
R – 100 min – Comedy
One of the most fun action comedies made in a very long time, The Grand Budapest Hotel may very well be the best work yet of Wes Anderson (Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom). Inspired by the works of novelist Stefan Zweig (author of Letter from an Unknown Woman), Anderson has corralled one of the finest casts of recent years with Ralph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Lea Seydoux, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, Owen Wilson, Bob Balaban, Fisher Stevens, and introducing the young star of the film Tony Revolori.
The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H (Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa (Revolori), the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune — all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing continent.
