The orient express at Hollywood

The latest buzz in Hollywood is the Wes Anderson – Owen Wilson movie: The Darjeeling Limited.

The movie is a bit unusual and stars Owen Wilson, Adrian Brodie and Jason Schwartzman as the three brothers who are in search of their parents, esp their father whose spirit they believe has reincarnated as a leopard. They travel on a train called The Darjeeling limited through the himalayas and through this journey become brothers again.

The movie has a very 70’s feel to it. And seems to look at the whole situation in a very wry manner. It is funny in parts (from what i could judge from the trailer) and with the finest talent AND the fact that it is an India based movie, is a movie to watch out for. It guest stars Natalie Portman, Angelica Houston and Irrfan Khan.

It is the opening film at the NY film festival.
