The Grand Budapest Hotel

Friday, 3/30 to Sunday, 4/1

"The movie is a flume ride through the imagination of one of the most creative minds making movies today, and the pleasure curls your toes." – Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald

Switching between three different time periods (with aspect ratios to match), Wes Anderson concocts a comic and poignant adventure centered on The Grand Budapest Hotel, a famous luxury European hotel caught in the middle of a war. Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori’s breakout role) dreams of being a lobby boy at the Grand Budapest and is taken under the wing of its legendary concierge, Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes). Along the way, the two are embroiled in 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 dramatic changing Continent. Arguably the best example of Anderson’s visual style, with its sumptuous palette of pinks, purples, greys, and whites, The Grand Budapest Hotel walked away with four Oscars (out of nine nominations) including Production Design, Makeup and Hairstyling, Costume Design, and Original Score.

A stop-motion adaptation of a children's novel; a whodunnit spanning multiple decades; a love story between young teens longing to be adults. Since 1996, Wes Anderson has proved to be a unique voice in the cinematic landscape, concocting serio-comic stories full of wit, wonder, and whimsy. In anticipation of Anderson's latest film, Isle of Dogs, CGAC presents five of the director's best works to date.
