The French Dispatch (15)

Parent & Baby Screening

When the editor of The French Dispatch, an American newspaper based in the fictional French city of Ennui-Sur Blasé, passes away, the staff remember him in classic Wes Anderson fashion.

The latest offering from the visionary director is being described as a love letter to writers, with the elaborately chic film divided like the sections of a newspaper; An obituary, the stories – The Cyclist, The Concrete Masterpiece, Revisions to a Manifesto and The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner – and an end note.

Through these highly stylised vignettes Anderson is able to flex the full muscle of his all-star cast, including Timothée Chalamet, Frances McDormand, Benicio Del Toro, Jeffrey Wright, Léa Seydoux, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Willem Dafoe, Christoph Waltz and Saoirse Ronan to name a few.
