Wes Anderson's new movie showcases impeccable set design, perfectly manicured dialog and a sweet confection of sights and sounds--not to mention the brilliant ensemble cast. It's probably Anderson's most fully-realized picture, from the inception of its plot to the self-referential pastiche of its production values. Ralph Fiennes gives a wonderfully varied and nuanced performance that is both polished and giddy. The absurd humor that is Wes Anderson's trademark lends itself to one of his funniest, most heartfelt and emotionally-tinged narratives. Simply put, it's A must-see!

A classic screwball comedy from the 1930s, this one star William Powell and Carole Lombard. At the height of the Depression, this film became as much a social commentary picture about the division of classes in America as it did a divine comedy about the division of classes in America; and how it ultimately doesn't matter how much money you've got in your pocket in order for love to flourish.
Wes Anderson is at his best here with a pitch-perfect ensemble cast and an awesomely funny script. The quirky Tenenbaum family is relatable to everybody and the dynamic between the cast and director is evident as the quality of the acting and art direction prove that. A must-see!
