“The French Dispatch is perhaps Wes Anderson’s best film to date.” — The New Yorker
THE FRENCH DISPATCH is writer-director Wes Anderson‘s nostalgic homage to 20th century newspaper and magazine writers and foreign correspondents. The movie’s title refers to the name of a fictional American newspaper’s magazine supplement: The French Dispatch of the Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun. The film follows the publication’s editor, Arthur Howlitzer Jr. (Bill Murray), and his eclectic group of writers in the 1960s and ’70s in the fictional town of Ennui-sur-Blasé. It shows four different stories and the writers responsible for them. There’s a local-color piece by photojournalist Herbsaint Sazerac (Owen Wilson); “The Concrete Masterpiece,” an in-depth profile of imprisoned artist Moses Rosenthaler (Benicio Del Toro) by arts & culture writer J.K.L. Berensen (Tilda Swinton); and “Revisions to a Manifesto,” a feature about a 1960s youth revolt in Paris by Lucinda Krementz (Frances McDormand), which stars Timothée Chalamet as one of the main protesting revolutionaries. In another vignette, James Baldwin-inspired writer Roebuck Wright (Jeffrey Wright) recalls, via a talk show, one of his most thrilling stories — “The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner” — about a law enforcement officer (Mathieu Amalric) whose son was abducted while Roebuck was visiting him for a dinner prepared by a renowned chef.
