Details

The Grand Budapest Hotel was written and directed by Wes Anderson; and stars Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson and Owen Wilson. Rated R.

For once, I'll allow Anderson his fripperies. With Gustave, he's made us sympathizers in his own fight for beautiful trifles, as though he sees his films as the frontline in the battle against crass, cash-in blockbusters. As with his doomed dandy, Anderson wants to resurrect the high-toned Hollywood filmmaking that perhaps never even existed. As Moustafa smiles, thinking of Gustave, at worst, people can say that these two nostalgists "sustained the illusion with a marvelous grace."

Oh my, I always thought that The Grand Budapest Hotel is some kind of hotel in NYC, because I keep hearing about it, but I've never been sure what exactly it is. I've even looked for it on http://new-york.hotelscheap.org/ and http://www.booking.com/ but I didn't find anything, Thank you for clarifying, I'll check if there is some kind of deal for the tickets and totally check it out.
