About The Grand Budapest Hotel
Cult director Wes Anderson's latest impeccably designed curio tells the story of Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes), the legendary concierge of a famous European hotel, The Grand Budapest. A visiting author (Jude Law) is told about Gustave's exploits by former lobby boy Zero (Tony Revolori) who was his subordinate, protégé and loyal friend. Between the wars, the hotel is a place of faded opulence and fussy luxury; Gustave rules the roost with a graceful deference to all his guests. But he also has an eye for the ladies and when one doddering paramour (Tilda Swinton) keels over and dies, Gustave is suspected of her murder and must go on the run with Zero in tow. The massive supporting cast includes Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzmann, Owen Wilson, Harvey Keitel and Adrien Brody.
