Hey there guys! This is last weeks post. We're circling back around this week so, this week's Director of the Week will be Wes Anderson. The Film of the Week is going to be The Royal Tenenbaums. Gosh golly, how I love this film!! All right, lets start off with the cast of this film. The Royal Tenenbaums casts all Luke and Owen Wilson, (they appear often on Wes Anderson's films), Bill Murray(of course), Gwyneth Paltrow, and Gene Hackman, and Angelica Houston. Now, the storyline. Royal Tenenbaum explains to his three children, Chas, Margot, and Richie, that he and his wife are separating. Chas, Margot and Richie are all extremely successful in different ways. Chas is a business and financial genius. Margot is a critically acclaimed play writer in the ninth grade who one an award. Richie is a tennis prodigy and artist. Then, in a post-success slump 22 years later, present tense, Royal claims he has stomach cancer once he hears word of his wife's engagement to someone else. Richie confesses his love for Margot, who is adopted, and he has expressed his feelings before through his artwork. It gets a lot better and theres more I can say but I don't really want to. This film has a weird sense of humor and its also quite ironic. Everything about this film is lovely. I would just really really recommend; then again thats why I'm writing about it in my blog hahahaah. Check it out!

Peace, Annabella
