Three brothers, train rides across India, a spiritual journey

Darjeeling Limited is the Wes Anderson film about three brothers who travel across India with the pretensions of the trip being a spiritual journey. After their father dies, they search for their mother who has become a nun in the subcontinent. The film is a brilliant display of color, culture, and brotherhood, and a lot of it resonates with me. My brothers still wrestle with me, or we still argue about which seat in the dining table we should occupy.

Don't get me started with the movie's soundtrack. I loved Les Champs-Élysées by Joe Dassin. This Time Tomorrow by The Kinks is also a favorite.
