MON­DAY THE GRAND BU­DAPEST HO­TEL

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

8.30PM, ELEVEN From great US film­maker Wes An­der­son, this is a sprawl­ing, lav­ish and highly en­joy­able es­cape from re­al­ity. The year is 1932, and the set­ting is a fic­tional five-star crash­pad in an equally fic­tional cor­ner of East­ern Europe. Here we find M. Gus­tave (Ralph Fi­ennes) at the peak of his pow­ers as the Grand Bu­dapest’s cel­e­brated chief concierge. What fol­lows is a ma­jes­ti­cally mad­cap ad­ven­ture ca­per, with Gus­tave and his loyal off­sider fight­ing to keep some for­mi­da­ble en­e­mies at bay.
