Prada's New Film: Ben Kingsley Falls For A Jacket, Roman Polanski Directs

With a knock-out cast of Sir Ben Kingsley and Helena Bonham Carter being directed by Roman Polanski, it's hard to think that someone — something — could upstage all of that talent. But somehow, in the new Prada short, "A Therapy," which debuted at Cannes yesterday evening, a purple puffer jacket stole the limelight.
The four-minute film depicts a bizarre therapy session involving a very rich HBC (seriously, only someone with cash to spare would kick around Prada pumps like that) retelling Sir Ben about a nightmare. Though the dream is interesting enough, what's really got Sir Ben's knightly knickers in a bunch is the coat Helena came in wearing, a fur-topped Prada puffer jacket that he eventually drops his duties to go and try on.
