Starring: Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Lea Seydoux, Tilda Swinton
Ralph Fiennes plays Gustave H, the legendary concierge of the titular hotel, and newcomer Tony Revolori plays Zero Revolori, his young friend and sidekick. Together they become embroiled in a plot revolving around a priceless Renaissance painting and a family fortune.
Set between the wars, against the backdrop of a dramatically changing continent, The Grand Budapest Hotel is a sumptuous Anderson extravaganza. Aided by such regulars as Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, designer Adam Stockhausen and composer Alexandre Desplat, his latest cinematic amuse bouche is rich in detail and epic in scale, suffused with the detached dry wit that is Anderson’s trademark. - Gráinne Humphreys / Jameson Dublin International Film Festival
