Whether you love or loathe his signature brand of whimsical storytelling and themes of upper middle-class ennui, Wes Anderson is one of the most recognised and decorated auteur directors currently working in Hollywood. Inspired by the realisation that neither of us had really seen a lot of his work, we decided to dive into his 2001 breakthrough hit The Royal Tenenbaums - in many ways the quintessential Wes Anderson movie.
Featuring an A-list cast that inclues Gene Hackman, Angelica Huston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller and Luke Wilson, The Royal Tenenbaums tells the story of a family of burned-out eccentrics who reunite after their long-estranged father returns claiming he has just weeks to live and wishes to make amends with his suspicious children.
Join us as we discuss American royalty, inconsistent narration and Gwyneth's impeccable smoky eye while attempting to determine whether the Anderson brand is a taste we can see ourselves acquiring in the long term. We also create some drinking games and of course pitch our own sequel ideas for the movie - a surprisingly challenging proposition that leads to some out-of-the-box ideas including a gameshow, a reality TV crossover and the first ever Beyond The Box Set Board Game.
