"Real, deep, soulful, transcendental, enjoyable brotherhood in this wonderland of a town ..." That's how Jeff Goldblum describes Wes Anderson's latest film, 'The Grand Budapest Hotel.'
The film is sort of an unofficial who's-who guide to Wes Anderson movies. Goldblum and Willem Dafoe, for example, were re-enlisted by the acclaimed indie director (after starring in 'The Life Aquatic' and 'Fantastic Mr. Fox,' respectively) to join a cast that includes Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton and Anderson newcomers like Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori and Saoirse Ronan.
We had a chance to sit down with Jeff Goldblum and Willem Dafoe to talk about working in a "wonderland of a town" for 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' being part of the Wes Anderson "brotherhood," and bringing a dark edge to the humorous caper adventure.

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.)

Wes Anderson has finally done it. He's gone and created his own country.
Zubrowka, the fictional town at the heart of 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' is positioned on the farthest Eastern edge of Europe's great empire. It is a melange of stylistic flourishes and decorative signifiers from a make believe 20th Century - a memory of a memory, a fastidious, whimsical take on real horrors - a storybook samizdat that entices with madcap adventure then goes in for the kill with existential dread. It is an incredible place to visit.

In 1998, Wes Anderson released his second film, 'Rushmore,' which followed the life of eccentric teenager Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman), his friendship with the wealthy and lonely Herman Blume (Bill Murray), and their fight for the affection of a beautiful elementary school teacher. Co-written by Anderson and Owen Wilson, 'Rushmore' helped further Anderson's career and put Schwartzman on the map. Now, 16 years later, we revisit the cast of this indie favorite and see what they're up to now.

In the first clip for 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' it's readily apparent that Ralph Fiennes' concierge fits in nicely with many of writer/director Wes Anderson's other protagonists. As he conducts an interview with a new hire, he rattles off instructions at a clip that would make Max Fisher jealous.
