The Darjeeling Ltd

Today, Film4, 9pm


A sentimental American indie comedy, very much in director Wes Anderson's usual style, starring the unlikely combination of Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman as three estranged brothers on an Indian road trip. They're more interested in rehashing old grudges than on exploring the scenery, though a series of accidents brings them together. Meandering, quirky, whimsical, this may be an acquired taste.
