Paul McCartney’s debut short film (aka music video), “My Valentine,” stars Johnny Depp and Natalie Portman and will screen in front of all showings of the Weinsteins’ “The Intouchables,” which opens this weekend. McCartney’s three minute film started with an idea from McCartney’s daughter, fashion designer Stella McCartney, who also dresses Portman in the film. Depp and Portman essentially translate the lyrics of McCartney’s song through sign language, and Depp adds guitar (recorded live and shown below).
Harvey Weinstein states, “Paul and Stella are great old friends. He was the first musician to say yes to perform at the 9/11 concert for New York, which I produced along with our friends John Sykes and Jim Dolan. Stella had a wonderful idea when she thought this song would translate well into a film, and I can’t wait to share it.”
