Wes Anderson Gives Us Another Brilliant Film!
on April 7, 2013
The Darjeeling Limited is my favorite Wes Anderson film made so far.
It's naturally created in that same Wes Anderson style that his fans have grown to love, adore, and become kind of addicted to.
The Story of 3 brothers, with 3 very different lives and personalities coming together one year after the death of their father. They have not seen or spoken to each other since the funeral, until they reunite on a train travelling through India called the Darjeeling Limited.
The story takes us on a comedic yet emotional journey through India as the 3 brothers try to once again connect with one another as brothers and to search out the mystery as to where there estranged mother has disappeared to.
Each brother plays a role. The Leader, The Lover, And the Follower of dreams.
The film opens up with a featurette called "Hotel Chevalier" which acts as a prologue to The Darjeeling Limited. In it, Jack's (Jason Schwartzman) ex-girlfriend (Natalie Portman) turns up unexpectedly at his hotel room in Paris, and they spend the night together.
The film will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will make you a little angry...but in the end you realize what this journey of 3 brothers was really about......Love & Friendship.
