Script to Screen: Royal Tenenbaums
Written and directed by Wes Anderson, The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) is a hilarious, touching and brilliantly stylized study of melancholy and redemption. Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) and his wife Etheline (Angelica Huston) have three prodigiously-talented children: math genius Chas (Ben Stiller), playwright Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow), and tennis star Richie (Luke Wilson). But when Royal abandons his family, all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums is subsequently forgotten over the course of two decades of betrayal, failure, and disaster. The Royal Tenenbaums is the story of the family’s sudden, unexpected reunion when Royal reappears, claiming to have a terminal illness, and ultimately reconciles with his family.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow will join Pollock Theater Director Matt Ryan for a post-screening discussion.
