What’s better than one Wes Anderson movie in a year? Two Wes Anderson movies in a year!
The director dazzled us with Asteroid City earlier this summer, and he’s continuing his 2023 streak with a new short film: The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar. Adapted from a short story collection by Roald Dahl, The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar introduces us to a rich man (Benedict Cumberbatch) who seeks out a guru who can see without his eyes (Ben Kingsley), all in the hopes of cheating at gambling. Charming performances, intricate sets, and direct addresses to camera ensue.
The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar hits select theaters on Sept. 20 and comes to Netflix on Sept. 27.
