Now available from the iTunes Store: Hotel Chevalier, a free 13-minute short film by Wes Anderson, starring Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman. It’s a prequel to Anderson’s soon-to-be-released The Darjeeling Limited. (Might not be work-safe, depending on your workplace’s policies toward nudity, profanity, and Futura.)
Update: Alas, it’s apparently only available from the U.S. iTunes Store. Anyone knows of a workaround for our non-U.S. friends, let me know. Update 2: What works, at least for some people, is changing your store to the U.S. and creating a new account with a bogus U.S. address. You won’t be able to buy anything, but you can download free stuff.
