THE HIP­STER ONE

NME - - FRONT PAGE - THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS

Wes An­der­son, 2001

“The Royal Tenenbaums is a mad and bril­liant tale of this very com­plex, far-reach­ing fam­ily. It’s iconic and funny and sad and bril­liant. Wes An­der­son’s aes­thetic and the tone of his films def­i­nitely rubs a lot of peo­ple up the wrong way, and I can see why it’s di­vi­sive, but I think he’s bril­liant and if you haven’t seen one of his films, this is the one to start with.”

Favourite char­ac­ter: “Gwyneth Pal­trow is bril­liant as Margot Te­nen­baum – she’s so dry and dark.”

Num­ber of times I’ve seen it: “Seven.”
