While they play sisters in the film, they share a significant age difference of 18 years, with Natalie born on June 9, 1981, and Lily-Rose born on May 27, 1999.
The film follows the story of Laura Barlow (Portman) and Kate Barlow (Depp), two sisters believed to have the supernatural ability to communicate with the dead. They travel to Paris to perform their act for a visionary French producer, but they soon find themselves entangled in a web of deceit and manipulation.
In the film, Natalie Portman shows her bare bottom and bare back. It surprised some fans as Portman said she would never do nudity again after the 2007 short film Hotel Chevalier.

Natalie Portman starred in Wes Anderson’s short film, “Hotel Chevalier,” which serves as a prologue to Anderson’s feature film, “The Darjeeling Limited.”
In “Hotel Chevalier,” Portman has a nude scene that drew more attention than the film itself, leading her to later express regret, as per The Guardian, for perhaps overshadowing the movie’s essence.
“The thing is – and maybe I’ve brought it on myself by talking about nudity so much – it’s still the thing that people talk about more than the short. And that’s the thing that makes me think maybe I shouldn’t have done it,” Portman said.

“It’s not that I regret the actual thing,” she said. “But it really depresses me that what I think is a wonderful film, that I’m really happy with – and Wes put a lot of time and energy into planning shots and writing the script, it’s very minimal, very exact – and then at the end literally half of any article or review about it has been about the nudity.”
“I’m definitely not a prude about sex or nudity, I just don’t want to do something that will end up as a screengrab on a porn site,” Portman confided.
