SYNOPSIS

‘Wes Anderson first illustrated his lovingly detailed, slightly surreal cinematic vision (with co-writer Owen Wilson) in this visually witty and warm portrait of three young misfits. Best friends Anthony (Luke Wilson), Dignan (Owen Wilson) and Bob (Robert Musgrave) stage a wildly complex, mildly successful robbery of a small bookstore, then go “on the lam.” During their adventures, Anthony falls in love with a South American housekeeper, Inez (Lumi Cavazos), and they befriend local thief extraordinaire Mr. Henry (James Caan). Bottle Rocket is a charming, hilarious, affectionate look at the folly of dreamers, shot against radiant southwestern backdrops — and the film that put Anderson and the Wilson brothers on the map.’ Criterion Collection

M | Medium level coarse language, low level violence
