The child prodigies of the Tenenbaum family - Chas, Margot and Richie - have fallen on hard times in adulthood, something they blame on their estranged father, Royal. However, when he announces that he has only weeks to live, the family is reunited for the first time in years.
No year would be complete without an offbeat comedy, and chances are you won’t see another like this in 2002. Tenenbaums boasts the same sense of the bizarre that made Rushmore and Being John Malkovich such hits — and, like those two, it’s one of the cleverest comedies to happen along in ages.
