Vibrant colors, symmetric imagery, meticulous production design, and swift camera pans -- those are the building blocks of the Wes Anderson universe and THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL is back at the Art to pull us into his world ahead of the April 13 premiere of Isle of Dogs.
Wes Anderson's previous title (which camped at the Art for a solid month in 2014!) recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the 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.
"One of Wes Anderson's cleverest and most gorgeous movies." -- Michael Phillips, The Chicago Tribune
