With the Oscars nominations announced on Thursday, Sharon and I are starting to work our way through the key films. We watched the Grand Budapest Hotel as an HD rental on the AppleTV.
Set in the 1930s, the film follows the adventures of M. Gustave, the Grand Budapest Hotel's concierge. Starring Ralph Fiennes as the concierge, he teams up with one of his employees to prove his innocence after he is framed for murder.
The film has a large ensemble cast, including: Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton, F. Murray Abraham, Jude Law, Harvey Keitel, Bill Murray and Owen Wilson.
Sharon didn't like the movie. After it was over, she said "that was not good." We usually talk about movies on a scale of 1 to 10. Sharon gave it a 4. I liked the film more than she did. I found it entertaining. Additionally, I enjoyed the movie visually and technically.
