Yes, it is awesome.

Votes: 603,999 | Gross: $59.10M

Wes Anderson's magical and whimsical world pulls you in and doesn't let go. Grand Budapest Hotel is meticulously executed and staggering in its love to detail. The cast is - as always with Anderson - stellar and the tale is, of course, beautiful.
