Wes Anderson brings his dry wit and visual inventiveness to this exquisite caper set amid the old-world splendor of Europe between the World Wars. At the opulent Grand Budapest Hotel, the concierge M. Gustave and his young protégé Zero forge a steadfast bond as they are swept up in a scheme involving the theft of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune--while around them, political upheaval consumes the continent. The Grand Budapest Hotel is a poignant paean to friendship and the grandeur of a vanished world, performed by an all-star ensemble.
