Description

Royal (Gene Hackman) sits at the head of a table surrounded by kin, a peculiar pack of played-out prodigies. The cast itself is a cabinet of curiosities: Ben Stiller, Anjelica Huston, Luke Wilson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bill Murray, and co-writer Owen Wilson. The family, either Tenenbaums or heirs to the thrown, flails about in gorgeously composed set pieces, filled with gags, sudden shifts in mood, and a faint nostalgia that emanates like decaying potpourri. An idiosyncratic visionary, Wes Anderson has a fondness for damaged characters buoyed up by a painful sort of laughter. The sinking ship that is the Tenenbaums has lifesavers in a variety of tart flavors.

Written by Anderson, Owen Wilson. Photographed by Robert Yeoman. Narrated by Alec Baldwin. With Bill Murray, Gene Hackman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller. (109 mins, Color, DCP, From Swank Motion Pictures)
