Episode 45: The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

This week we again leap without Nicolas Cage, but instead with Harvey Keitel to spend some time at The Grand Budapest Hotel. What an amazing place, and an interesting movie. Listen to find out if we all enjoyed our time in this extreme colour palette.

Season 2, Episode 18

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Harvey Keitel

From: National Treasure

Chosen by:
Actor (Glenn)
Film (Mike)

Harvey Keitel has a great variety of roles and Glenn was hoping we could get to Tarantino by picking leaper Harvey Keitel. Instead we are going to the visually pleasing Wes Anderson film The Grand Budapest Hotel where he plays the opposite of the character in the last film, this time breaking out of a prison rather than hunting down people that belong there..

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Ralph Fiennes

To: The Menu

Chosen by:
Actor (Glenn)
Film (Glenn)

We are now up to our leaps where each of us choose both leaper and film. To start with Glenn takes us with Ralph Fiennes (who we all agreed was outstanding in The Grand Budapest Hotel) to the unsettling island restraurant where we view The Menu.
