A Wes Anderson Double feature
7pm – The Life Aquatic, with Steve Zizou (2004)
Internationally famous oceanographer Steve Zissou, (Bill Murray), and his crew–Team Zissou–set sail on an expedition to hunt down the mysterious, elusive, possibly non-existant Jaguar Shark that killed Zissou’s partner during the documentary filming of their latest adventure. They are joined on their voyage by a young airline co-pilot, (Owen Wilson), who may or may not be Zissou’s son, a beautiful journalist, (Cate Blanchett) assigned to write a profile of Zissou, and Zissou’s estranged wife and co-producer, Eleanor, (Anjelica Houston). They face overwhelming complications including pirates, kidnapping, and bankruptcy. – TCM
9pm – The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)
Royal Tenenbaum, (Gene Hackman), and his wife, (Etheline, Anjelica Houston) had three children—Chas, (Ben Stiller), Richie,(Luke Wilson), and Margot, (Gwyneth Paltrow)–they were a family of geniuses and then they separated. Chas started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have had a preternatural understanding of international finance. Margot was a playwright and received a Braverman grant of fifty thousand dollars in the ninth grade. Richie was a junior champion tennis player and won the U.S. Nationals three years in a row. Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure and disaster. Most of this was generally considered to be their father’s fault. The tale follows the family’s sudden and unexpected reunion one recent winter. – TCM
