Royal: Well, listen… Baby, I’m dying.
Ethel: What’s happening? Oh, I’m sorry… I didn’t know… [breaks down]
Royal: Wait a second. Ok, uh, listen, I’m not dying… but I need some time. A month or so. OK? I want us to-to…
Ethel: [slaps him hard] WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? Are you crazy!!?
Oh, dear. The Royal Tenenbaums is indeed one underrated gem. Brilliant plot and dialogue, and don’t even get me started on the ensemble.
Every actor is delicious in his/her role, but it’s got to be Gwyneth Paltrow’s Margot and Luke Wilson’s Richie that stand out - a twisted, beautiful love story.
Can’t wait for Moonrise Kingdom.
