Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited is an emotional comedy about three estranged American brothers re-forging family bonds on a trip across the vibrant and sensual landscape of India. Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman play the three disconnected siblings who reunite for a meticulously planned, soul-searching train voyage across India one year after the death of their father. Armed with eleven suitcases, a laminated itinerary, a can of pepper spray, an abundant supply of over-the-counter painkillers, and a host of volatile family conflicts just ready to erupt, Francis (Wilson), Peter (Brody), and Jack (Schwartzman) eventually find themselves stranded alone in the middle of the desert—at which point an unexpected new chapter in their journey begins. Co-starring Anjelica Huston, Bill Murray and Irrfan Khan, and co-written by Roman Coppola, The Darjeeling Limited is a dazzling, hilarious and deeply felt exploration of spirituality, materialism and family ties that takes Anderson’s work to deeper places than ever before. (Dir. by Wes Anderson, 2007, USA, 91 mins., Rated R)
