The French Dispatch

Comedy Drama


An homage to the New Yorker as it was under editor Harold Ross, with three stories drawn from The French Dispatch, a magazine published in the fictional town of Ennui-sur-Blasé.

The director delivers what he's known for: colourful, frenzied screens brim-filled with more detail than the viewer's eye can discern. The stories from the source material are stylised more than realistic in format, intricate and entertaining without forming a strictly cohesive narrative. The best part of "The French Dispatch" is the cast, a vast and stellar line-up of talent congruent with the exceptional production standards of this movie. Read all about it.
