    Film (1990)
    26 votes
    • Released: 1990
    • Directed by: Stephen Frears
    Hard-as-nails Lily Dillon (Anjelica Huston) works as a swindler for dangerous bookie Bobo (Pat Hingle), probably the only man she fears. Arriving in Los Angeles on "business," Lily looks up her son, Roy (John Cusack), a small-time con artist content with paltry sleight-of-hand cheats. Roy's girlfriend, Myra (Annette Bening), looks like an All-American type but is a grifter looking to pull off another big-time con. The convergence of the three hustlers inevitably means trouble for all of them.
  • The Royal Tenenbaums
    25 votes
    • Released: 2001
    • Directed by: Wes Anderson
    The Royal Tenenbaums is a quirky comedy-drama, directed by the distinctive Wes Anderson. It tells an eccentric tale of a peculiar family, headed by patriarch Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman). His estranged wife, Etheline (Anjelica Huston), and their prodigious but troubled offspring - business savant Chas (Ben Stiller), playwright Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow), and tennis star Richie (Luke Wilson) - form the core of this unusual clan. A narrative spun around familial discord, reconciliation attempts, and personal growth, it's a film that's as unpredictable as the Tenenbaums themselves. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, it stands testament to Anderson's unique storytelling prowess.
