Wikipedia article of the day for September 2, 2016

The Wikipedia article of the day for September 2, 2016 is Hotel Chevalier.
Hotel Chevalier is a 2007 short film written and directed by Wes Anderson, starring Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman as former lovers who reunite in a Paris hotel room. The 13-minute film acts as a prologue to Anderson's 2007 feature film The Darjeeling Limited, in which a man (played by Adrien Brody) reunites with his brothers (Owen Wilson and Schwartzman) in India after the death of their father. Hotel Chevalier was shot on location in a Parisian hotel by a small crew and self-financed by Anderson, who initially intended it as a stand-alone work. Its first showing was at the Venice Film Festival première of the feature film on September 2, 2007, and it made its own debut later that month at Apple Stores in four American cities. The day after its première, it was made available for free from the iTunes Store for one month, during which it was downloaded more than 500,000 times. The film garnered near-universal critical acclaim from reviewers who compared it favorably with The Darjeeling Limited and praised its richness, poignancy, and careful construction.
