Wes’s World: THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS on 35mm!

The Royal Tenenbaums

Anderson fashions a fully-realized, baroque world populated by the eccentric Tenenbaum clan, a family of morose ex-wunderkinds, now adrift in harsh reality and led by Royal (Gene Hackman), who has just been unceremoniously kicked out of his hotel dwelling. Upon hearing of his ex-wife Etheline’s (Anjelica Huston) engagement to her accountant Henry (Danny Glover), Royal tries to convince her and his children that he has stomach cancer in a bid to win back their love. Through this scheme, the family is reunited—ex-playwright Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow), shrewd businessman Chas (Ben Stiller), and former tennis prodigy Richie (Luke Wilson) return home to grapple with their own ideas of family and tormented pasts. (110 mins.)

Matt Zoller Seitz, film critic, editor-in-chief of RogerEbert.com, and author of THE WES ANDERSON COLLECTION (2013), will introduce the film on Friday evening, July 25.

 

THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS screens Friday, July 25 at 8:30pm and Saturday, July 26 at 6pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our Wes’s World: Wes Anderson and His Influences series.
Tickets are available online or at the door.
