Wes Anderson‘s comedic The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) is about grudge holding and forgiveness (in a family) and burn-out following worldly success. It’s a pretty good movie except it is finally too sanguine and unrealistic. Moonrise Kingdom is unrealistic too, but we readily accept that its oddball settings bear little resemblance to the world we live in. In my view, Anderson is a minor artist, but admittedly TRT is enjoyable for its cleverness.
