The Tenenbaums, The Royal Tenenbaums
When Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) reunites with the eccentric fractured family he left behind, lying to them with a sob story about a fatal illness, he is not welcomed back with open arms. His estranged wife (Anjelica Huston) loathes him and his trio of morose children (Ben Stiller, Gwyneth Paltrow and Luke Wilson) is emotionally stunted, frozen in time at the moment of their former child-genius glory. It's dysfunction as art.
