To promote its 2010 Spring Collection, the ultra-popular, hipster-ish boutique shop Opening Ceremony asked pals Jason Schwartzman and Kirsten Dunst -- who co-starred alongside one another in Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette -- to create a short film that featured the collection in a fun, hip, stylish way. Co-directing the short alongside up-and-comer Tracy Antonopoulos is the newest Coppola to hit the film scene, Gia Coppola -- granddaughter of Francis Ford Coppola, niece to Sofia Coppola and cousin to Jason Schwartzman.
The short itself, titled Non Plus One, is supposed to be inspired by the French new wave, and while I imagine this will only appeal to a select few out there, the one good thing I took away from it was that I'm kinda diggin' the main song featured in the short, which comes from Schwartzman's band Coconut Records. Other than that, it's kinda cute in a "thrown together" sorta way, though it feels more like a music video than anything else . But I'd be curious to see what Gia does from here. Will she follow in the footsteps of her family and continue directing movies? Will they all look like low-budget imitations of Sofia Coppola's films? Or will the young photographer discover her own voice and vision, and surprise us as one of the next great female visionaries?
Check out the short (via Style.com) after the jump, and let us know what you think.
