Wes Anderson has a new movie, his second this year, with a
Apple TV+ Netflix film, with the Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar.
I really know nothing about Rolad Dahl, outside of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. But Henry Sugar was one of his short stories, and Anderson made a short movie of it - 37 minutes to be exact.
As you'd suspect, Anderson doesn't stray from his quirkiness or even colour pallet.
He doesn't have the usual cast of character, but the cast shines with Dev Patel (I loved him in this), Ralph Fiennes, Ben Kingsley and Benedict Cumberbatch. All do great jobs, as you'd expect.
Allegedly, Anderson will be making a series of short films with this cast.
I can't say there are spoilers to be had, it's just a short story in a short film that is extremely well executed.
It's 37 minutes. What do you really have to lose?
