The Darjeeling Limited
Three estranged brothers meet up a year after the death of their father, all in the throes of depression and grappling with some major life changes. Jack (Jason Schwartzman) is alienated from his girlfriend and takes up a chance romance with a train steward while Peter (Owen Wilson) nurses a broken nose and distracts himself with a venomous pet snake. Meanwhile, their brother Francis (Adrien Brodyy) has tracked down their absent mother (Anjelica Huston) in a remote convent and has plans to force a family reunion.
Why You Should See This Film
The screenplay was written by Anderson along with Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman, lending the film a unique (and deeply familial) sensibility compared to other entries in the director’s oeuvre. Anderson’s trademark aesthetic lends itself brilliantly to the vibrant colours of India, drawing vibrant inspiration from the gorgeous work of Satyajit Ray, as well as Louis Malle’s The River.
Presented by Double Rainbouu
This screening features an introduction by Mikey Nolan and Toby Jones of beloved Sydney brand Double Rainbouu.
Created for ‘beach babes and pool punks', their fun and fresh twists on the cult classic Hawaiian shirt are enjoyed the world over. An antidote to traditional resort brands, their vivid tropical prints are inspired by the seaside culture of design duo Nolan and Jones’ native Australia.
