As the teaser shows, the movie's all about this oh-so-esteemed hotel concierge working in the roaring '20s who takes a young lobby boy under his belt — figuratively, thank goodness, and not literally — to become his new protégé-slash-confidant-slash-partner-in-crime.
Things get sticky when an rich elderly lady guest he once bedded goes cold and leaves a priceless (except that everything has a price, of course) Renaissance painting called "Boy with Apple" to him in her will, much to the chagrin of her family and friends. Naturally, the artwork won't be delivered cleanly and easily to its named recipient, so hysterical police chase scenes and such do ensue. And if we know anything about Mr. Anderson, they'll ensue with impeccable style.
"The Grand Budapest Hotel," filmed in Germany earlier this year, will hit theaters on March 7, 2014.
