The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) Wes Anderson, Gene Hackman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Anjelica Huston, Comedy, Drama
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. The Royal Tenenbaums is a hilarious, touching, and brilliantly stylized study of melancholy and redemption from Wes Anderson.
