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.
On the death of its beloved Kansas-born editor Arthur Howitzer, Jr., (Bill Murray) the staff of The French Dispatch, a widely circulated American magazine based in the French city of Ennui-sur-Blase, 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.
With an all-star cast including Owen Wilson, Timothée Chalamet, Frances McDormand, Saoirse Ronan, Tilda Swinton, Benicio del Toro and many, many more, The French Dispatch is a dazzling, breathlessly inventive and irrepressibly witty tribute to the printed word. But, best of all, it is a true Wes Anderson movie.
