FANTASTIC MR. FOX
2009, 20th Century Fox, 87 min, Dir: Wes Anderson

Director Wes Anderson's first animated film is an adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic children's book. Mr. and Mrs. Fox (voiced by George Clooney and Meryl Streep) live an idyllic home life with son Ash (Jason Schwartzman), but the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr. Fox. When he slips back into his old ways as a sneaky chicken thief, he ends up endangering the whole animal community.


THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL
2014, Fox Searchlight, 100 min, USA, Dir: Wes Anderson

Somewhere in Zubrowka, before WWII wiped that country off the map, sits the Grand Budapest Hotel; at its heart is concierge M. Gustave (Ralph Fiennes). With faithful lobby boy Zero Moustafa (newcomer Tony Revolori) at his side, he keeps things running smoothly - until a priceless painting that could tip the balance of a family fortune arrives at the hotel. Writer-director Wes Anderson has assembled an all-star cast for this comedy-drama, with Oscar winners F. Murray Abraham, Adrien Brody and Tilda Swinton joining such regular collaborators as Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson.
