Old rich dames, angry henchmen and one very punctilious hotel concierge make up the fantasy world at the center of Wes Anderson's whimsical caper that evokes a bygone era of aristocratic hierarchy and opulence."The Grand Budapest Hotel," in part inspired by Anderson's own experiences of living in Europe and the works of Austrian author Stefan Zweig, pays homage to an era where tradition reigned supreme. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" spans different time periods, flitting between the 1960s and the 1930s, in order to shape a narrative based on a "story within a story within a story," Anderson said.Last year, the director found his biggest hit with "Moonrise Kingdom," which earned Anderson his third Oscar nomination for best original screenplay, and made more than $68 million at the worldwide box office.With his next, yet-to-be-titled project already in the works, (Anderson declined details, saying it's too early to describe yet), the director said he's finding himself drawn to conjuring up earlier eras.
