The French Dispatch
A love letter to journalists and the written word, The French Dispatch sees Wes Anderson assemble his biggest, most Wes Anderson-y ensemble cast yet. Set in the fictional French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé sometime during the 20th century, the film follows the eccentric expat staff of an American newspaper outpost. After the untimely death of their Editor-in-Chief, Arthur Howitzer, Jr. (Bill Murray), the team set out to publish one final issue of the magazine in honour of his memory. What unfolds from there is a vibrant anthology film which brings the pages of the publication to life in delightful, aesthetically pleasing style.
