His wife, Etheline Tenembaum played by Anjelica Huston, forces him to leave the household so she can raise the children herself, over the years he makes little effort to stay in contact with them. The children all grow up to be exceptional people bursting with individual qualities and excelling in different careers, however they all share the common trait of being unhappy with their lives.

story

Royal decides he wants his family back, knowing that they wont accept him he concocts an elaborate lie. Royal claims to have terminal stomach cancer and tells his family he has just six weeks to live and wants to make amends with his family. Etheline takes pity on her former husband and arranges for the entire family to live under the same roof again. Wes Anderson has created a wonderful comedy which is witty and has an unusual outlook on family life. His characters are all extremely loveable and unique, you simply can not help but fall in love with this eccentric family. An off-beat, ironic, absurdist sense of humor pervades the entire film.
