The Grand Budapest Hotel is vintage Wes Anderson in more ways than one. A laundry list of A-list actors (many of which are seen in other Anderson movies) in odd rolls, trains, motorcycles, wealthy back-drops, death and signature Anderson cinematography. It was an absolute blast to watch as are all of his films.

The film, featuring Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Adrian Brody, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton and a whole bunch more,  goes something like this; The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H., a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune Рall against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.


True to Anderson form, The Grand Budapest Hotel leaves you wanting more.

If you’re tired from of the regurgitated, big budget, utter crap coming out of Hollywood these days, The Grand Budapest Hotel is a welcome breath of fresh air that pays homage to those days when you actually looked forward to going to the movies. We don’t want to spoil the rest. Go see it!
