You’ve heard us talk about Wes Anderson’s 13 minute short film Hotel Chevalier which stars Natalie Portman (in the buff, kinda) and Jason Schwartzman. And now you can watch it exclusively on Apple iTunes. Fret not, it’s completely free – just click this link, download and consume.
Hotel Chevalier is set in a hotel room in France and is a “brief coda to a doomed romance and the prologue to The Darjeeling Limited.” I read in an interview that Portman didn’t want to smoke in the short (which was part of the script) so they replaced the cigarette with a toothpick.
A few screen captures after the jump, including the much talked about “money shot”.
Update: The movie is now available on Google Video, check it out after the jump.
