Wes Anderson

 

 

Wes Anderson is one of the most original and distinctive directors working today, his films creating singular, unmistakable worlds. Whether telling the story of a family struggling with ghosts of its past and future (The Royal Tenenbaums, The Darjeeling Limited), portraying the absurdist adventures of a Cousteau-like adventurer (The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou), or presenting a beautiful tale of first true love (Moonrise Kingdom), his work is unique and truly wonderful. Anderson’s films combine dry, intelligent humour with poignant portrayals of flawed characters – often a mix of the wealthy and the working class. One of our favourite contemporary directors, Wes Anderson is, in our opinion, the most effortlessly cool filmmaker today. He has received two Academy Award Nominations. It is a true honour to screen the marvellous film he has chosen for our audience.
