Directed by Wes Anderson
Rated R, 100 min.
This is the much anticipated, colorful, and eccentric delight from the director of Moonrise Kingdom, Wes Anderson. It recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel, played with expert comic timing by Ralph Fiennes. He and the lobby boy, who becomes his most trusted friend, find themselves embroiled in the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune — all against the back-drop of a simmering Europe between the wars. The stellar cast makes this imaginative confection a must-see.
