The French Dispatch

by Wes Anderson Gala Premieres

The magazine "The French Dispatch" has its editorial offices in the fictional French town of Ennui-sur-Blasé. Here, a cranky publisher and his even crankier authors commit the strangest stories to paper. Whether painting murderers, poisoned cornichons or stormy student revolutions – the writers of the French Dispatch take a very idiosyncratic look at the world in their articles. Cult director Wes Anderson brings their reportages to life in his wonderful art film. A homage to journalism, his film is a veritable firework display of detail-rich sets, absurd characters and crazy connections. Carried by an all-star cast that is unique in movie history, it features Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand and Benicio Del Toro.
