A suicidal tennis star, a misanthropic wooden-fingered playwright, a neurotic widowed father, and a family’s faithfully unfaithful patriarch. These are but a few of Wes Anderson’s beautifully crafted — albeit dysfunctional — characters from his 2001 masterpiece The Royal Tenenbaums. With an all-star cast (Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller, Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston, and both Luke and Owen Wilson) and a meticulously whimsical world, The Royal Tenenbaums reigns supreme as a truly transcendent tale of family, forbidden love, and Mordecai.
The Royal Tenenbaums will begin at 8 p.m on Friday, Jan. 12 at the historic Redford Theatre; 17360 Lahser Rd., Detroit; 313-537-2560; redfordtheatre.com; Tickets are $5.
