Wes Anderson is back with another cinematic masterpiece that will make your eyes go “Ooh!” and your brain go “Huh?”. After watching the trailer for The French Dispatch I have no idea what the plot is other than it involves some sort of publication I’m assuming is called The French Dispatch. But it sure looks nice!
Rotten Tomatoes describes the movie as a love letter to journalists:
“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.”
The trailer shows Benicio Del Toro as a prisoner/artist, I think? There’s also a story about a revolution of some kind. And I don’t know what the third story is about. But there’s a chef? Bill Murray is also in the movie as the editor of The French Dispatch. Elisabeth Moss is his secretary, I’m guessing? And current twink ingenue of the moment, Timothée Chalamet, is serving us Justin Bieber moustache and electrocuted boy band hair realness:

The rest of the cast includes Owen Wilson, Saoirse Ronan, Léa Seydoux, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Liev Schreiber, Adrien Brody, and Christoph Waltz. And that’s not even all of them!
Like all Wes Anderson movies, I’m sure the critics will love it and it will sweep next year’s Oscars. So everybody better prepare themselves for the billionth coming of #OscarsSoWhite!
