Streetlight Records

Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) and his wife, Etheline (Anjelica Huston), had three children - Chas, Margot, and Richie - and then they separated. Chas (Ben Stiller) started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have an almost preternatural understanding of international finance. Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow) was a playwright and received a Braverman Grant of $50,000 in the ninth grade. Richie (Luke Wilson) was a junior champion tennis player and won the U.S. Nationals three years in a row. Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure, and disaster. The Criterion Collection is proud to present Wes Anderson's hilarious, touching, and brilliantly stylized study of melancholy and redemption.

Reviews:

A family portrait of failure and loss, Wes Anderson's "The RoyalTenenbaums" suggests that the embryonic auteur has a collection of NewYorker humor columns as impressive as his cast of ringers. Most notable is GeneHackman, who gives a concerto in the key of scoundrel major as the family'sestranged patriarch, a martini-swilling cad who returns home in a sad attemptto reconcile with his clan of prodigious oddities. Yet another Criterion essential.
