Delving into the whacky world of Wes Anderson

Wes Anderson has finally done it. He’s created his own country for his latest film "The Grand Budapest Hotel". On today’s cinema special we take you on a journey into the quirky director’s world as his eighth and highly anticipated film hits cinema screens.

Also on the show: from fantastical adventure to a real-life tale of survival, we speak to the director of documentary "Land of the Bears" about how he managed to capture the grizzly animals up close and personal. Guillaume Vincent joins us on set to tell us why he choose to shoot the nature film in 3D and how he thinks more documentaries will follow suit.

Finally, do you think your family is dysfunctional? Wait until you see Meryl Streep as a manipulative, monstrous matriarch in the Oscar-nominated movie "August: Osage County".
