Another wryly comic, exquisitely designed delight from Wes Anderson (The Life Aquatic, The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox), The Grand Budapest Hotel – set in an ornate Europe, between the wars and partly inspired by the novels of Austrian writer Stefan Zweig – recounts the adventures of Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary hotel concierge with a penchant for romancing elderly guests, and Zero Moustafa, the humble lobby boy (Tony Revolori) who becomes his trusted friend.
After Madame D, one of Gustave’s former conquests (Tilda Swinton) is killed, her son (Adrien Brody) vows to avenge her death. A row breaks out over the theft of a priceless Renaissance painting, and Zero must save the day, while in the background, the threat of encroaching fascism looms.
Earnest and whimsical, full of charm and unexpectedly moving,The Grand Budapest Hotel’s star-filled cast also includes Saoirse Ronan, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Léa Seydoux, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, F. Murray Abraham and Jason Schwartzmann.
