THE FRENCH DISPATCH

DIRECTED BY: WES ANDERSON

JULY 24, 2020

Under the new Searchlight Pictures moniker, Wes Anderson is back with his tenth film titled “The French Dispatch.” Not only does he have most of his go-to ensemble cast, including Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, and Adrien Brody, he’s also bringing stars like Elisabeth Moss, Timothée Chalamet, Léa Seydoux, and Benicio del Toro, Benicio and Léa are the two that shine in this trailer, along with Saoirse Ronan playing way out of type. Although I’m an easy mark for a Wes Anderson film, this definitely shoots to the top of my must-see list of 2020.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS

A love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th-century French city that brings to life a collection of stories published in “The French Dispatch” magazine.
