Fans have to wait until March to check out the latest immaculately assembled Wes Anderson film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, but the director released a short film today via Prada’s YouTube page: Set in 1955, it stars Jason Schwartzman as a race-car driver who crashes his ride in small Italian town. (Prada footed the bill, but its presence is limited to Schwartzman’s racing uniform.) Race cars, a small Italian town in the ’50s, a steering wheel put on backward: It’s all very Wes Anderson-esque.
Hey, remember when we went to the school from Rushmore? That was fun.
