Whiz Kid: Early Wes Anderson
(R) USA – 1 hr 31 min
1996 · d. Wes Anderson   Reviews
Starring Luke Wilson, Owen Wilson, Robert Musgrave, James Caan, Lumi Cavazos

After "escaping" a voluntary psych ward stay, Anthony (Luke Wilson) reluctantly joins his deluded pal Dignan (Owen Wilson) and their bud Bob Mapplethorpe (Robert Musgrave) in an inept heist. When they undertake a caper with a landscaping con-artist (James Caan), the criminal lifestyle tests the limits of their friendship. With its eccentric visual tone, oddball characters, and youthful sense of adventure, Wes Anderson’s feature debut laid the stylistic foundation for works to come.

Shown in conjunction with the film course The Empathy and Ecstasy of Wes Anderson, this screening will be introduced by the course's instructor, Lisa DeNight.
