Jeff Goldblum is Steve Zissou’s money-flushed sea-bound nemesis in THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU.
Co-written with Noah Baumbach, The Life Aquatic is Wes Anderson’s parody and homage to Jacques-Yves Cousteau. The film features the eccentric oceanographer Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) who sets out to get revenge on the mythical “Jaguarshark” that ate his partner Esteban…and he’s going to make a documentary about it. Along for the ride is Zissou’s crew of misfits including his estranged wife, a journalist, and his successful, well dressed arch-rival, Alistair Hennessey. So put on your red beanie to set out on the quirky underwater expedition that is much more than a shark hunt. It always is.
