As a bit of a holiday season appropriate length purist, I generally don’t go in for anything remotely Christmas-y before December 1. 

But for Wes Anderson…I make an exception, especially when it involves Adrien Brody as a train conductor on an express journey to quirky, nostalgic, pleasantly retro Xmas joy. Particularly when it involves ‘chocolate flavoured beverage with whipped topping’. 

Also: This short film is a surprise release from the Royal Tenenbaums director, created to highlight H&M’s Holiday collection, hence the abundance of train passengers in distinctly non-vintage flannel pyjama bottoms.
