The Royal Tenenbaums

Gene Hackman is Royal Tenenbaum, a once prominent New York lawyer who fakes a terminal illness in order to reunite with estranged wife Anjelica Huston and his kids, former childhood prodigies Ben Stiller, Gwyneth Paltrow and Luke Wilson... and, perhaps, benefit financially in the process. But Hackman faces an uphill struggle since Huston is about to re-marry tax lawyer Danny Glover and each child has developed major league neuroses over the years. Off-kilter dark comedy from Wes Anderson ("Rushmore") also stars Bill Murray, Seymour Cassel and Owen Wilson, who co-scripted with Anderson.
