Уэс Андерсон — американский режиссер, сценарист и продюсер. Дважды номинировался на премию «Оскар» — за лучший сценарий фильма «Семейка Тененбаум» и лучший анимационный фильм «Бесподобный мистер Фокс». Также претендовал на «Золотого льва» Венецианского кинофестиваля за фильм «Поезд на Дарджилинг. Отчаянные путешественники» и «Золотую пальмовую ветвь» Каннского кинофестиваля за картину «Королевство полной луны».
По словам Андерсона, все его фильмы — очень личные. «Я не задаюсь целью исследовать какой-то конкретный аспект своей личности, — отмечает режиссер. — Каждый раз получается по-новому: „Королевство“, например, кто-то однажды назвал „воспоминанием о фантазии“. Это эмоции, которые я сам испытывал в том возрасте, и мое представление о том, как эти эмоции надо выражать».
