Back by popular demand! Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel) returns with his tenth film, assembling a cast of his usual suspects and a few new faces in this portmanteau love letter to journalism, set in the final days of a magazine based in a fictional French town.
As the staff of 'The French Dispatch' – the foreign bureau of American newspaper the Kansas Evening Sun – convene to deliver their final issue, different stories are brought to life: 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; 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!
Dir: Wes Anderson
