Ahead of the cinematic release of visionary Director Wes Anderson's latest movie 'Asteroid City' we are re-watching one of our favourite Wes Anderson movies: 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'.
The film explores the rich tapestry of 20th-century European culture while playfully addressing dark historical events. Set in the 1930s, the film takes place at the Grand Budapest Hotel, a ski resort led by charismatic concierge Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes), and his loyal apprentice Zero (Tony Revolori).
