The Royal Tenenbaums -- An estranged family of former child prodigies reunites when their father announces he has a terminal illness.
By creating The Hebrew Hammer, Kesselman has brought to life a character rarely seen in Hollywood or off-Hollywood films: a sexy and powerful Jewish action hero.
Just as such indelible films as Melvin Van Peebles' 'Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song' and Gordon Parks' 'Shaft' were reactions to Hollywood's inability or unwillingness to portray strong, sexy Black characters in the early 70s, Kesselman's 'Hammer' is his way of creating a new hero for a new generation.
Like any exploitation film, The Hebrew Hammer pitches stereotypes like flaming fastballs at a knowing audience. But it would be wrong to say that Kesselman, by creating a 'Shaft' with peyos, is satirizing the Blaxploitation genre. Instead, Kesselman is honoring the genre, proud that he, too has made a picture with a built-in audience in mind.
Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) and his wife, Etheline (Anjelica Huston), had three children -- Chas, Margot, and Richie -- and then they separated. Chas (Ben Stiller) started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have an almost preternatural understanding of international finance. Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow) was a playwright and received a Braverman Grant of $50,000 in the ninth grade. Richie (Luke Wilson) was a junior champion tennis player and won the U.S. Nationals three years in a row. Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure, and disaster. Touchstone Home Entertainment is proud to present Wes Anderson's hilarious, touching, and brilliantly stylized study of melancholy and redemption.
