Wes Anderson

The French Dispatch

108' - 2021 - Drama, Comedy, Romance - Dialogue: French, English
Director: Wes Anderson Composer: Alexandre Desplat With: Owen Wilson, Timothée Chalamet, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Léa Seydoux
A love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional twentieth century French city that brings to life a collection of stories published in "The French Dispatch Magazine".
“Wes Anderson sets out to honor The New Yorker and its ilk, re-creating the joy of losing oneself in a 12,000-word article (or three) on the big screen while relocating the entire affair to his adoptive home Paris. The anthology film consists of 'an obituary, a travel guide and three feature articles'. While there’s no overarching narrative between segments, Anderson is quite clearly the author of all five - for there is no living filmmaker with a more recognizable visual signature. Every frame of The French Dispatch is unmistakably his. Thus, the unconventional project succeeds in delivering that very particular pleasure of reading a well-curated issue from cover to cover.” - Variety
