Wes Anderson fans won't have to wait until next year's feature to see more from the acclaimed director: he's premiering a new short film called Castello Cavalcanti today, and it's available to stream online. While the seven-minute-long short may not offer the full range of Anderson's tropes, it still includes his funny pacing, his stylized dialog, and his oft-recurring star, Jason Schwartzman. The film finds Schwartzman in 1955, crashing a race car in a small Italian town. While the film is sponsored by Prada, it's far from an ad — Prada's name is only prominently displayed once on screen. You can watch the full short below.
