If the storytelling of The Grand Budapest Hotel wasn’t kaleidoscopic enough for you, listen to the stories behind the stories as best-selling author Matt Zoller Seitz discusses his new book, The Wes Anderson Collection: The Grand Budapest Hotel (Abrams). Anderson’s eighth feature film offers intrigue and absurdity in 1930s Europe, and the book includes in-depth interviews with Anderson, costume designer Milena Canonero, lead actor Ralph Fiennes and others. You’ll come away with some smart things to say during your Oscar party, as Grand Budapest has nine nominations.
