The Royal Tenenbaums

Royal Tenenbaum and his wife Etheline had three child prodigies before they separated - Chas, a real estate trader in his early teens - Richie, a junior champion tennis player and Margot, who received a $50,000 grant for her ninth grade play. Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure and disaster. Most of this was generally considered to be their father's fault.
