Wes Anderson: Close-Ups, Book 1

2 hours


The indispensable pocket guide to the films of Wes Anderson, from Bottle Rocket to Isle of Dogs.

Wes Anderson has quickly become one of the auteurs of modern American cinema, creating his own distinctive world with pastel colour palettes, meticulous set design, nostalgic soundtracks and a kooky troupe of actors.

In this pocket guide, Sophie Monks Kaufman navigates his off-kilter world, strolling across the quadrangles of Rushmore Academy, diving beneath the sea with Team Zissou and checking in to the Grand Budapest Hotel to discover how an awkward indie film nerd from Texas became the most celebrated director of his generation.
