3. The Royal Tenenbaums
This film is always a nice reminder that there are always more dysfunctional families out there than mine. The Royal Tenenbaums is about a family of child prodigies who get together after being estranged for years when they hear that their father is diagnosed with a terminal illness. I’m not even sure why it’s categorized as a comedy. While there is dark humor sprinkled throughout, the main focus is on the loneliness of these characters and how Anderson tries to get this family who hates each other to love again when tragedy strikes.
