Chef has a ‘Westropsective’ to honor ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ filmmaker Wes Anderson

By Marcina Zaccaria,

A chef in St. Louis has decided to pay tribute to Wes Anderson’s films with a Westrospective.

Chef Liz Schuster has previously hosted events including dinner and the movies at St. Louis’ Tenacious Eats at the Meyer’s Grove Nightclub. She is showing a number of Anderson’s films, including The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Royal Tennenbaums, and the stop-motion animated film, The Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Anderson is enjoying the success of his most recent film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. The movie features Tilda Swinton as a wealthy woman and Ralph Fiennes as a hotel concierge in 1930s Europe, according to The Huffington Post.

Anderson told the St. Louis Post Dispatch in a recent phone interview, “I had been to Vienna several times, but had only been to Prague once, and in researching the film we went all around Poland and Czechoslovakia, a country that disappeared before our eyes. We finally found our make-believe setting in Saxony.”

The Grand Budapest Hotel opens locally on March 21.
