THE GRAND FILMMAKER
What? Never heard of the Republic of Zubrowka? Maybe that’s because the country only exists in the world of Wes Anderson. Let the filmmaker explain all tonight when he discusses his new 1930s-set movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel, at the New York Public Library. Inspired by the fiction of Austrian writer Stefan Zweig, the film, which opens March 7, follows the hotel’s concierge (Ralph Fiennes) as he and a lobby boy try to prove his innocence after a guest is murdered. Paul Holdengräber, director of LIVE from the NYPL, moderates.
