Wes Anderson movies have a trademark quirky style and zany characters, usually amassing a cult following, his films include The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou and Moonrise Kingdom.
He made his directorial debut with this idiosyncratic story of three guys who decide to pull off a heist in order to heal and repair their separating friendships.
It's a promising debut from writer/director Wes Anderson, but he most certainly went on to bigger and better things.
