Trivia

Wes Anderson:  [divorce]  Suzy's parents are on the verge of divorce; the parents in The Darjeeling Limited (2007) and The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) are also divorced. See more »

Goofs

The pilot of the plane incorrectly says the word "five" as "fiver". In standard radio phonetics, the number "nine" is pronounced "niner", to distinguish it from "five", which is not changed or pronounced "fife". See more »

Quotes

Sam: Sometimes I stick leaves on my hair. It helps cool your head down.
Suzy: Hmm. That's a good idea. It might also help if you didn't wear a fur hat.

Highly recommended
28 May 2012 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

If you've been following Mr. Anderson's relatively short career, you'll find more of the same here: a film that is full of quirkiness, which I find to be parables of the troubles we encounter in life. I came to this film without any expectations, having read nothing about it in the news so I was pleasantly surprised that the main protagonists are a couple of tweens. Any fears of mine finding a sappy or saccharine story were vanquished and replaced with wonderment following the journey of the two main characters. Both actors didn't seem to have formal training but this didn't stop them from serving the story well. It is down to the genius of Mr. Anderson capturing their human performances which are nothing less than beautiful.

I can't recommend this film highly enough!
