Wes Anderson directs H&M‘s 2016 Holiday Film, “Come Together”, starring Adrien Brody. The story takes place on a train traveling through a snowy landscape on Christmas Eve where Brody plays the conductor. And it’s simply amazing!
“The winter train ride, under Wes Anderson’s direction, is the perfect setting for H&M’s holiday collection full of relaxed, wearable elegance. It’s about mixing the informal with a sense of occasion, capturing the holiday mood for both dressing up and getting cosy with loved ones,” says Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M’s Head of Design and Creative Director.
In the film, lone passengers are traveling to join their loved ones for the Christmas holiday, but winter weather conspires to way-lay them. And Wes Anderson, known for his distinctive visual and narrative style, with fast-paced, melancholic, and obsessively symmetrical compositions, creates the perfect atmosphere.
“This story may resonate more than ever at a time in the world where we could all do with giving a stranger a hug,” says actor Adrien Brody.
