The dysfunctional Tenenbaums are a New York family of former child prodigies who are now neurotic adults. The children are Chas (Ben Stiller), Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Richie (Luke Wilson). The family patriarch, Royal (Gene Hackman) is a bit of a rogue, so his children and ex-wife Etheline (Anjelica Huston) blame him for all of their misfortunes. Poverty, old age and loneliness compel Royal to make things right with his estranged family and the movie follows his attempts to win them back. The third feature from director Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, Fantastic Mr. Fox), who co-wrote the screenplay with actor Owen Wilson (featured in a small role). Supporting players include Danny Glover and Bill Murray.
