The French Dispatch


Director Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Isle of Dogs) employs a sizeable ensemble cast in this anthology comedy-drama about a fictional magazine.

As The French Dispatch, an American magazine based in the French town Ennui-sur-Blasé, prints its final issue, we see three unique stories from its 50 year run. A journalist forms a close connection with the Che Guevara-esque leader of the town’s student revolutionaries. An art critic examines the relationship between an imprisoned painter and a guard, who acts as his muse and model. And a food writer shares his attempt to interview a police chef, while also witnessing a high profile kidnapping.

Shot in his distinctive style, The French Dispatch is Wes Anderson’s ‘love letter to journalists’, taking joy and delight in small stories about people forging special and idiosyncratic bonds.

“Wes Anderson’s ode to print journalism is a periodic delight” The Guardian

“there is no living filmmaker with a more recognisable visual signature, and every frame of “The French Dispatch” is unmistakably his” Variety

“the most Wes Anderson film, arguably the purest distillation of his singular aesthetics, storytelling and predilections” Sight & Sound
