Review: Designed to look like an old child’s book, the design features a lot of details and should appeal to fans of the Wes Anderson aesthetic.

Review: Wes Anderson hasn’t been this unhinged in awhile, so it should appeal to his myriad fans, but won’t return any he might have picked up with Grand Budapest to the theater. It just looks too bizarre.
Wes Anderson is now in the Oscar family, so his films should continue to do better with the Academy. The only problem is that this looks far more esoteric than his major live action Oscar predecessor The Grand Budapest Hotel, which might minimize who will find the film of interest.
