Darjeeling Limited

Media: The Darjeeling Limited (2007) Wes Anderson

Three estranged, prescription drug-addicted brothers come together for a train trip across India to reestablish their relationship.  During the trip they fight, argue and take drugs to cope, as each brother has a distinctive personality.  The eldest brother, Francis (Owen Wilson) organizes the trip and takes the lead in planning the itinerary.  The youngest, Jack (Jason Schwartzman) is depressed over his breakup, and Peter (Adrien Brody) left his pregnant wife at home to come on the trip.  Francis intends for this trip to be a religious journey through India, where at the end of their voyage they go visit their mother who has moved to the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains to become a nun.   Wes Anderson takes us along the journey to watch, as the three brothers get closer through life changing experiences during their time in India.

Art: The Art Of Printed Luggage

The interesting and unique luggage the brothers use in the movie is a prop you can not help but notice.  Belonging to their late father, the luggage is extremely important to the brothers and they literally and physically cannot go anywhere with out it.  The one of a kind luggage was designed by Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton and is decorated with the initials J.L.W. and a bunch of tropical designs: palm tree, giraffe, and rhinoceros.  Take a look at how finely crafted these luggage pieces are:

Design: Indian Influence

Since the movie takes place in India I thought of bringing up some gorgeous interior design pictures of Indian influenced objects and rooms.  Typically, the style of India consists of unique patterns and textiles, mirrored curtains and bedspreads, and beautiful rugs and tapestries. The colors involved are: blue, purple, red, brown, and beige.  This type of style also happens to be my favorite!  Check it out:
