Estranged brothers Francis (Owen Wilson), Peter (Adrien Brody) and Jack (Jason Schwartzman) reunite for a train trip across India. The siblings have not spoken in over a year since their father passed away. Francis is recovering from a motorcycle accident, Peter cannot cope with his wife’s pregnancy and Jack cannot get over his ex-lover. The brothers fall into old patterns of behaviour as Francis reveals the real reason for the reunion: to visit their mother in a Himalayan convent.

Wes Anderson transports his arch, pristine, melancholic sensibility to India, where three estranged brothers meet after their father’s death and hop a train in a quixotic attempt to heal their spiritual wounds.”  (David Ansen – Newsweek)
