Royal Tenenbaum and his wife Etheline had three children - Chas, Richie, and Margot - and then they separated. Chas started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have an almost preternatural understanding of international finance. Margot was a playwright and received a Braverman Grant of fifty thousand dollars in the ninth grade. Richie was a junior champion tennis player and won the US Nationals three years in a row. Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure, and disaster. Most of this was generally considered to be their father's fault. THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS is the story of the family's sudden, unexpected reunion one recent winter.
Touchstone Pictures presents an American Empirical Picture, THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS, directed by Wes Anderson (BOTTLE ROCKET, RUSHMORE) from a screenplay written by Anderson and his writing partner Owen Wilson. The film was produced by Anderson, Barry Mendel (RUSHMORE, THE SIXTH SENSE) and Scott Rudin (WONDER BOYS, SEARCHING FOR BOBBY FISCHER).
