Dir. Wes Anderson | USA | 2001 | 1 hr 50 mins
Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) and his wife Etheline (Anjelica Huston) had three children — Chas (Ben Stiller), Richie (Luke Wilson) and Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow). The Tenenbaums were a family of geniuses — geniuses that left home and separated from the family as soon as possible. Chas started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have an almost preternatural understanding of international finance. Margot was a playwright and received a Braverman Grant of $50,000 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 Tenenbuams was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure, and disaster. Most of this was generally considered to be their father’s fault. The Royal Tenenbaums details the story of the family’s sudden, unexpected winter reunion.
