Opening Night: The French Dispatch

  •   Wes Anderson
  •   United Kingdom, France, Germany

On the occasion of the death of their beloved editor Arthur Howitzer, Jr., staffers of The French Dispatch, a widely circulated American magazine based in the French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé, convene to write his obituary. Memories of the Kansas-born 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. Featuring an all-star cast (Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Bill Murray, and Owen Wilson), The French Dispatch is yet another wondrous and inspired tale from the visionary mind of award-winning filmmaker Wes Anderson.
