A collection of 8 Wes Anderson films, including:

Bottle Rocket

Newcomer Owen Wilson, in a star-making performance, co-wrote the screenplay about three best friends who attempt to escape their suburban boredom through a life of crime. But these bickering, bumbling thieves are no match for the local "godfather" (James Caan) who leads them into the biggest heist of their careers. Co-starring Luke Wilson and Bob Musgrave in their film debuts.

Rushmore

This acclaimed comedy stars Jason Schwartzman as Max Fischer, a 10th grade pupil at Rushmore Academy. When not daydreaming, Max pours all of his energy into his beloved extra-curricular activities, often to the neglect of his studies. His determination to make a name for himself is sent into overdrive by the arrival of pretty new teacher Miss Cross (Olivia Williams).

Outside of school, Max is taken under the wing of middle-aged steel tycoon Herman Blume (Bill Murray), whose sons are boorish thugs. Things begin to go awry when Mr Blume falls for Miss Cross himself, and Max becomes unhinged with jealousy. His schemes to win the affections of his teacher grow ever more extreme, while his academic life threatens to collapse around him.

The Royal Tenenbaums

Oscar-nominated comedy about an oddball New York family of former child geniuses from writer-director Wes Anderson ('Rushmore'). Before their marriage floundered, Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) and his wife Etheline (Angelica Huston) succeeded in raising three prodigies: business supremo Chas (Ben Stiller), prize-winning playwright Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow) and tennis champion Richie (Luke Wilson). Now, after years of separation, and with the children grown-up and the memory of their prodigy faded, Royal returns to his family and tries to make amends. However, with Royal's history of lies and betrayal, his offspring - who all now have problems of their own - are going to have trouble welcoming him back.

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Comedy adventure starring Bill Murray as internationally famous oceanographer Steve Zissou. Steve and his crew, Team Zissou, set sail on an expedition to hunt down the mysterious, elusive, possibly non-existant Jaguar Shark that killed Zissou's partner during the documentary filming of their last adventure. They are joined on their voyage by a young airline co-pilot who may or may not be Zissou's son (Owen Wilson), a beautiful journalist (Cate Blanchett) assigned to write a profile of Zissou, and Zissou's estranged wife and co-producer, Eleanor (Anjelica Huston). They face overwhelming complications including pirates, kidnapping, and bankruptcy.

The Darjeeling Limited

Wes Anderson's comic Indian road-movie, set on a train, follows three brothers on a road-to-nowhere as they try to bond with one another after the death of their father. Trying to rekindle their sibling affections, Francis (Owen Wilson), Peter (Adrien Brody), and Jack (Jason Schwartzman) Whitman travel across India to meet up with their mother (Anjelica Huston), who has forsaken western life to become a nun in the Himalayas. Along the way, the hapless brothers fall victim to a range of mishaps, involving, among other things, pepper spray and an unhealthy fondness for pharmaceuticals, as their well-intentioned trip spirals out of control.

Fantastic Mr. Fox

Animated children's feature based on the novel by Roald Dahl. After being discovered by the three farmers he alternatively steals chickens, ducks and turkeys from, Mr. Fox (voice of George Clooney) finds his life is in jeopardy. In an attempt to catch and kill him, the farmers stake out his foxhole but when this fails, they begin to dig him out. In a race against time, Mr. Fox and his family dig their way further underground in an attempt to escape. After three days in hiding, Mr. Fox is forced to come up with a fantastic plan in order to save the lives of his starving family.

Moonrise Kingdom

On an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, two twelve-year-olds (Kara Hayward, Jared Gilman) who fall in love, make a secret pact and run away together into the wilderness. As a local search party led by the Sheriff (Bruce Willis) and the girl's parents (Bill Murray, Frances McDormand) try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore – and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a British-German comedy-drama film written and directed by Wes Anderson and tells the story of a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between WW1 and WW2 and his friendship with a young employee who becomes his most trusted protégé.
