The Royal Tenenbaums

The Royal Tenenbaums is a 2001 film - half a comedy, half a drama. It is about a family of geniuses who, at some point of their lives, became unhappy and despaired. The father, Mr. Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman), who left the family many years ago, fakes a terminal illness in order to get in touch with his wife and children again and to help them out of their misery.

The film was directed by Wes Anderson[?] and stars very popular actors like Anjelica Huston as Etheline Tenenbaum, Ben Stiller as Chas Tenenbaum, Gwyneth Paltrow as Margot Tenenbaum or Billy Murray[?] as Raleigh St. Clair. Gene Hackman won a Golden Globe for his performance and the screenplay by Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson[?] was nominated for an Academy Award.

The movie represents a somehow strange but very innovative kind of humour. The characters wear more or less the same clothing throughout the whole film.
