Following the unexpected and sudden reunion of the Tenenbaum family, this movie is a funny, unusual and quirky comedy detailing the lives of the three Tenenbaum children who were hailed as geniuses at a young age. The achievements of the three children were then virtually erased by decades of failure and betrayal within the family. With its eccentric and continuously entertaining portrayal of dysfunctional family life, this film has earned the title of a ‘classic’ in Wes Anderson’s filmography and will remain one of his best.


2. Fantastic Mr Fox
