The hyper-stylized world of writer and director Wes Anderson is its own universe, one where a brace-faced, know-it-all playwright can befriend a depressed headmaster and fall for a widowed science teacher… and coexist alongside an eccentric oceanographer and his doomed revenge mission against a mythological shark. Technical precision, strategic use of color, storylines underscored with dysfunctional family dynamics, and a recurring stable of actors are among the elements that make Rushmore and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou classics.
The Life Aquatic will screen at 8 p.m. followed by Rushmore at 10 p.m. on Friday, March 9 at the historic Redford Theatre; 17360 Lahser Rd., Detroit; 313-537-2560; redfordtheatre.com; Tickets are $5.
