Wes Anderson's films have been a staple for this group. Sometimes he hits (Moonrise Kingdom, The Fantastic Mr. Fox), sometimes he misses (The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou).
But he always has a core of stellar actors and plots that can reach from the offbeat to the hilarious. I've been looking forward to this film since I saw the first preview, and am in great anticipation.....
Synopsis: The Grand Budapest Hotel 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 an imaginary European country on a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

Dinner & Discussion will be at Yanni's (in the Landmark Plaza Centre), just south of the theater.
I apologize for the short notice, but did not want us to miss this film, and have had too many last minute cancellations lately.
