Wes Anderson presents... Castello Cavalcanti

Wes Anderson presents... Castello Cavalcanti
Michael Bonner

Apologies for the brevity of this blog - we're on deadlines - but I thought I'd share this, a new seven minute short film from Wes Anderson.

It's released as part of the Prada Presents... strand, which kicked off last year with Roman Polanski's A Therapy. Castello Cavalcanti finds Jason Schwartzman in 1950s Italy playing a race car driver who crashes his car into a Jesus sculpture in a small town called - of course - Castella Cavalcanti.

It's a nice little appetizer while we wait for the main feast - Anderson's next full-length film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, which is due here in March next year.
