The French Dispatch also stars Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Jeffrey Wright, Adrien Brody, Benicio del Toro, Owen Wilson, Lea Seydoux and Timothee Chalamet among others.
The official synopsis of the film reads out “The film has been described as a love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th-century French city, centering on three storylines. It brings to life a collection of tales published in the eponymous The French Dispatch, based in the fictional French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé. The film is inspired by Anderson’s love of The New Yorker, and some characters and events in the film are based on real-life equivalents from the magazine. One of the three storylines centers on the May 68 student occupation protests, inspired by Mavis Gallant’s two-part article The Events in May: A Paris Notebook. Another storyline, involving on Adrien Brody’s character of Julien Cadazio, is based on The Days of Duveen, a six-part feature in The New Yorker on art dealer Lord Duveen.”
