Critics and Wes Anderson fans who know their way around YouTube know a little something you may not. That's because they have seen Anderson's short, "Hotel Chevalier," which has preceeded press/festival screenings of The Darjeeling Limited (and been available online).
The short, which stars Natalie Portman and Jason Schwartzman, reveals a lot about Schwarztman's character and recurring themes in the full movie. So much so, in fact, that we were wondering why they would show the movie without it.
Well, no need to worry anymore. Fox Searchlight has decided to add "Hotel Chevalier" to the bill; the short will now roll before all all showings of The Darjeeling Limited. Now everyone can be enriched. Good choice, Fox. Bravo to you.
