Full Description

The French Dispatch · 15

From the visionary mind of Academy Award® nominee Wes Anderson, The French Dispatch brings to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century French city. It stars Benicio del Toro (Sicario, Traffic), Adrien Brody (The Pianist, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Tilda Swinton (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Isle of Dogs), Léa Seydoux (Spectre, Oh Mercy!), Frances McDormand (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, Fargo), Timothée Chalamet (Lady Bird, Call Me By Your Name), Lyna Khoudri (Savages, The Specials, Papicha), Jeffrey Wright (Westworld, The Hunger Games), Mathieu Amalric (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Sound of Metal), Stephen Park (Fargo, The Mindy Project), Bill Murray (Isle of Dogs, Lost in Translation) and Owen Wilson (Father Figures, Marley and Me) and many, many more!

On the occasion of the death of its beloved Kansas-born editor Arthur Howitzer, Jr., the staff of The French Dispatch, a widely circulated American magazine based in the French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé, convenes to write his obituary. Memories of Howitzer flow into the creation of four stories: a travelogue of the seediest sections of the city itself from The Cycling Reporter; “The Concrete Masterpiece,” about a criminally insane painter, his guard and muse, and his ravenous dealers; “Revisions to a Manifesto,” a chronicle of love and death on the barricades at the height of student revolt; and “The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner,” a suspenseful tale of drugs, kidnapping and fine dining.

“This is Anderson at his most crowd-pleasing” (The Times).

“The director’s 10th feature is among his most visually remarkable, each frame filled with meticulously crafted small details that add up to a dense, inviting cinematic jewel box” (Screen International).
