Royal Tenenbaum and his wife Etheline had three children--Chas, Richie and Margot, and then they separated. Chas started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have an almost 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 Royal Tenenbaums is the story of a family of geniuses and their sudden, unexpected reunion one winter.

Also, for your interest, there is already a release of "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" as a region "B" release due for shipping in a few days (25th June 2018.)
This release of The Royal Tenenbaums is excellent...... Wes Anderson is incapable of making a bad film!
Seeing Gene Hackman in a comedy role was unexpected, but he pulled it off with aplomb. I already knew he was a great actor, but this uncharacteristic part further reinforced my admiration. Gwyneth Paltrow also shone very brightly, giving a great turn as a former child prodigy turned nervous wreck adult. Throughout this film there is a succession of events that should generate light chuckles, which build its momentum and carry it along rather well. There are also a couple of mood-changing darker moments which linger in the air, to make you wonder whether laughing was appropriate. A clever ploy. Recommended
