Synopsis

The Royal Tenenbaums is a 2001 American comedy-drama film directed by Wes Anderson. The story follows the eccentric and dysfunctional Tenenbaum family, consisting of three gifted siblings who were once child prodigies but have since grown apart. The family patriarch, Royal Tenenbaum, played by Gene Hackman, decides to reconnect with his estranged family by pretending to be terminally ill. This deception sets off a series of events that force the Tenenbaums to confront their past and come to terms with their relationships.
