Austin’s South by Southwest Film Festival has announced the bulk of their line-up, and it includes a special screening of “The Grand Budapest Hotel”. Director Wes Anderson will be present for an extended Q&A following the screening.
The Grand Budapest Hotel 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; a desperate chase on motorcycles, trains, sleds, and skis; and the sweetest confection of a love affair – all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.
