Hilarious, touching and totally original comedy about a dysfunctional family's sudden, unexpected reunion. The Royal Tenenbaums tells the story of Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) and his wife Etheline (Angelica Huston) who had three child prodigies before they separated - Chas (Ben Stiller), a real estate trader in his early teens - Richie (Luke Wilson), a junior champion tennis player, and Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow), who received a $50,000 grant for her ninth grade play. 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 with its outstanding all star cast and darkly humorous plot is set to be an instant classic.
