“I'll order you a red hat and a bikini.”
Bill Murray plays Steve Zissou, an ocean documentary filmmaker in the vein of Jacques-Yves Cousteau who is on a quest to hunt down and destroy the legendary jaguar shark that ate his best friend. Along for the ride is Zissou’s ex-wife (Anjelica Houston), a young man (Owen Wilson) who believes that Zissou might be his father, and a very pregnant journalist (Cate Blanchett).
Filled with wonderfully animated undersea life and an almost garish, exotic, retro styling this is up there with Anderson at his visual best. Don your best red woolly hat, a Campari & soda and some dynamite and join us for The Life Aquatic...
