The Royal Tenenbaums

The Royal Tenenbaums

Writer-director Wes Anderson‘s unique, signature narrative and visual style are front and center in his offbeat 2001 comedy, THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS; the extraordinary story of one family’s sudden, unexpected reunion.

Royal Tenenbaum and his wife Etheline had three children–Chas, Richie, and Margot–they were a family of geniuses and then they separated. Chas started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have had a preternatural understanding of international finance. Margot was a playwright and received a Braverman grant of fifty thousand dollars in the ninth grade. Richie 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. Most of this was generally considered to be their father’s fault. The tale follows the family’s sudden and unexpected reunion one recent winter. Starring Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Luke Wilson, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Danny Glover, Bill Murray, and Alec Baldwin.
