Celebrated filmmaker Wes Anderson invites you to book a room in The Grand Budapest Hotel, a hilariously offbeat, meticulously-designed screwball tragi-comedy set in Europe between the World Wars.
“One of Wes Anderson’s cleverest and most gorgeous movies.” – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famously swank European hotel, and Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori), the shy 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 — all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent. Filled with Anderson’s customary quirky wit, sumptuous visuals and an all-star supporting cast including Tilda Swinton, Willem Defoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Edward Norton, Jude Law and Bill Murray, The Grand Budapest Hotel is a dazzling enchantment from one of Hollywood’s most unique filmmakers.
