NEW DELHI: After receiving tremendous acclaim overseas, the extravagant and artistic star-studded The Grand Budapest Hotel by Wes Anderson is slated for release in India on 25 July.
The movie recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars; and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting; a raging battle for an enormous family fortune; and the sweetest confection of a love affair – all against the backdrop of a suddenly and dramatically changing continent.
Fox Searchlight Pictures in association with Indian Paintbrush and Studio Babelsberg are presenting this American Empirical Picture based on a story by Anderson & Hugo Guinness.
The film 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.
Director Wes Anderson says his eighth feature film comes from a mix of inspirations including the pre-code comedies of the 1930s and the stories and memoirs of Viennese writer Stefan Zweig.
