Saoirse Ronan and Tony Revolori Interview: ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ Stars on Their Wes Anderson Initiation
In ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel,’ which features many familiar stars of past Wes Anderson movies, Saoirse Ronan (‘The Host‘) and newcomer Tony Revolori were the new blood on set. We sat down with the two youngest stars of the film to chat about their initiation into this world that’s home to the likes of Bill Murray, Edward Norton and Jeff Goldblum. (We started talking about food ’cause Revolori had just ordered pizza.)
‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ features Ralph Fiennes and Tony Revolori in the two leading roles of Gustave, the eccentric concierge of Hotel Budapest, and his pupil, Zero, an eager-to-learn lobby boy. After a rich, old woman with whom Gustave has had a longterm affair drops dead, the concierge is bequeathed a priceless painting. Unfortunately, he encounters some issues with the widow’s greedy son and steals the painting before he is eventually framed for her murder. Saoirse Ronan takes the leading female role of Agatha, Zero’s love interest, who becomes embroiled in all of the duo’s troubles.
Aside from the above mentioned names, ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ filled out the remainder of its immense cast with Jude Law, Willem Dafoe, Tilda Swinton, F. Murray Abraham, Jason Schwatzmann, Owen Wilson and many more. The film opens in theaters this Friday, March 7.
