The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou
6:30pm - Tuesday, Sep 21, 2021
We're tipping our hat to one of our all-time favourite actors, Bill Murray (on his birthday!) with a screening of writer-director Wes Anderson's 2004 comedy THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU.
Renowned oceanographer Steve Zissou has sworn vengeance upon the rare shark that devoured a member of his crew. In addition to his regular team, he is joined on his boat by Ned, a man who believes Zissou to be his father, and Jane, a journalist pregnant by a married man. They travel the sea, all too often running into pirates and, perhaps more traumatically, various figures from Zissou's past, including his estranged wife, Eleanor. With Anjelica Huston, Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, Cate Blanchett.
"It is such a brilliant idea, and everything looks so great, especially the way the film is constructed on Cousteau-esque lines, with the calm deliberation of a nature documentary from a more innocent age." (The Guardian)
"Orson Welles said a film studio was the best train-set a boy could have, but The Life Aquatic is something else: Anderson uses the sound stages of Cinecittá like a kid playing with toy boats in the bath. He makes one hell of a splash." (Independent on Sunday)
