Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, March 16th at the 4:15 showing of The Grand Budapest Hotel at the Landmark E Street Cinema. Look for Brian A. wearing a brown sweater in the ground floor theatre lobby near the top of the escalators about 30 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Writer/director Wes Anderson (Moonrise Kingdom, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Royal Tenenbaums) returns with The Grand Budapest Hotel, which recounts the adventures of Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori), the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The dramatic comedy involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune - all against the backdrop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent. All-star ensemble cast also includes F. Murray Abraham, Tom Wilkinson, Owen Wilson, Adrian Brody, Tilda Swinton, Mathieu Amalric, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Bill Murray, Jude Law, Jeff Goldblum, Saoirse Ronan and Edward Norton.
