The beloved director has teamed with Adrian Brody and H&M for a Christmas-inspired short film.
First off, yes, this is an ad for H&M’s winter collection (which, heading into the heat death of a Queensland summer, could not be less relevant to us right now).
But it’s also a four-minute-long Wes Anderson short, damn it, and that’s not something we’re about to overlook.
The short, titled Come Together, has Anderson’s fingerprints all over it — it’s got Adrien Brody, a train, John Lennon music (Happy Xmas (War Is Over), specifically), a very distinct colour palette, and plenty of whimsy. Anderson never skimps on the whimsy.
It’s beautiful and heartwarming, and with no sign of a new feature-length film on the horizon (his last film was in early 2014!), we’ll take what we can get from Wes Anderson in the meantime.
