"Just about everything is a little off-kilter in this quirky story about a wildly dysfunctional family." --Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
Our outdoor series with Moxie Cinema continues with Wes Anderson's 'The Royal Tenenbaums' (2001).
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.
$6 at the door, with a portion of proceeds going to support the fabulous Moxie Cinema. The beer will be flowing all night long, with food available from Cecil's To Go. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and loved ones out for a backyard movie under the stars!
