About Margot Tenenbaum
Released in 2001, The Royal Tenenbaums is an American comedy-drama film directed by Wes Anderson. Known for its quirky sense of style, the film centered around a dysfunctional family, the Tenenbaums. While each child became a prodigy at a young age, either in math, writing, or tennis, they each grew more dysfunctional than ever. From mental breakdowns, sexual promiscuity, to the loss of loved ones, each sibling has experienced struggles. However, when their father becomes diagnosed with cancer, the siblings find themselves back home to support their father.
Of course, many secrets are revealed throughout their time at home. One secret includes the diagnosis of their father being a ruse to gain attention from his estranged wife. While that’s just the beginning of the drama, the siblings seemingly grow from the experience and move on to live happier, more fulfilled lives.
