Wes Anderson Short Film Starring Jason Schwartzman Is Here


“Castello Cavalcanti” is a short film sponsored by Prada. It debuted at the Rome Film Festival on Wednesday. As usual, nicely done. Anderson’s next feature, The Grand Budapest Hotel, opens early next year.

You do know that Jason Schwartzman is the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola, son of Talia Shire, first cousin of Sofia Coppola, Roman Coppola, and Nicolas Cage. Just FYI.
