The Royal Tenenbaums

by Wes Anderson

Is This Your Brand?
(25)

Description

Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) and his wife, Etheline (Anjelica Huston), had three children -- Chas, Margot, and Richie -- and then they separated. Chas (Ben Stiller) started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have an almost preternatural understanding of international finance. Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow) was a playwright and received a Braverman Grant of $50,000 in the ninth grade. Richie (Luke Wilson) was a junior champion tennis player and won the U.S. Nationals three years in a row. Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure, and disaster. Touchstone Home Entertainment is proud to present Wes Anderson's hilarious, touching, and brilliantly stylized study of melancholy and redemption.

This is one of Wes Anderson's best. A beautifully designed film that has humor and heart. The cast is jam packed with stars turning in hilarious and dimensional performances: Gene Hackman, Anjelica Houston, Ben Stiller, Own and Luke Wilson, Gwenth Paltrow, Bill Murray, and Danny Glover to name a few. And like all Anderson films, the soundtrack is superb.

The Royal Tenenbaums is an irreverent, charming comedy that strikes a balance between dark humor and poetic storytelling. Definitely a cult classic.

I'm a huge fan of Wes Anderson and I consider this to be one of my favorites from him. The Royal Tenenbaums is essentially about a dysfunctional family. The film's humor is quirky and witty.

I love Ben Stiller, I did not love this movie. It was likable but not something that I'd watch over and over again. If you haven't seen it yet, I would suggest a watch.

Absolutely loved it. As always with Wes Anderson it had the signature beautiful cinematography, clean symmetrical shots, whimsical, at times twisted humor, and although this one had a kind of depressing ending, I loved it overall.
