Hospitality staffing app

If you’ve never seen The Grand Budapest Hotel, you’re missing out on a true masterpiece. Directed by Wes Anderson, the movie revolves around the adventures of a hotel concierge in a weirdly beautiful setting of the 1930’s Central Europe.

Quirky and entertaining, it features an ensemble cast of Bill Murray, Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson, Edward Norton, and others. If you’re into movies, each of these names alone would be well enough a reason to catch the film. In The Grand Budapest Hotel, you get a whole crew of some of the world’s finest actors working together.

React Component Libraries and Frameworks to Watch on Github in 2018
