MONDAY THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL
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.
