The second movie in the series features The Grand Budapest Hotel, directed by Wes Anderson. This movie with its highly decorative settings and iconic stylization recounts the adventures of M. Gustave (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori), the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune – all against the backdrop of a suddenly and dramatically changing continent (IMDb).
