I always look forward to the latest from creative genius Wes Anderson. His last film, Moonrise Kingdom, was ranked #2 on my Top 10 of 2012 list. Like always he has gathered an all-star cast many of whom are regulars to his stories. Ralph Fiennes stars as Gustave H., the legendary concierge of The Grand Budapest Hotel with newcomer Tony Revolori as his protégé, Zero.
Here is the official synopsis:
“The Grand Budapest Hotel tells of a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars and his friendship with a young employee who becomes his trusted protégé. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, the battle for an enormous family fortune and the slow and then sudden upheavals that transformed Europe during the first half of the 20th century.”
I was grinning ear to ear when I first watched this trailer. It looks just as crazy and wacky as his other stuff. What are your first impressions? Do you have a favorite Anderson movie? Feel free to sound off in the comments section!
