In a statement, today, London Film Festival artistic director Sandra Hebron said, "Wes Anderson and his knockout cast are at their sparkling best in 'The Darjeeling Limited', and we're very excited to be closing our Festival with this original and hugely enjoyable film from one of our favourite auteurs."
