BOTTLE ROCKET
1996, Sony Repertory, 91 min, USA, Dir: Wes Anderson

The movie that introduced Wes Anderson and the Wilson brothers (Owen and Luke) to the world is a sweet, hilarious combination of coming-of-age tale and heist movie. Owen plays a persistently optimistic slacker whose dreams of a big score don't quite mesh with his lack of aptitude for crime and, in the role of elder statesman, James Caan plays the mob boss with whom Wilson and his friends collide.
