‘The French Dispatch’ Is Wes Anderson’s Stylish Star-Studded Return To Form

It’s no secret that we’re fans of purposeful design. In fact, coming to a greater understanding of creative liberties during the creation of products, art, or the written word is one of few pleasantries that perpetuates our universal mission for expressiveness. Wes Anderson, one of the cinema’s finest and most articulate directors, is well-studied when it comes to said human interest — and his latest film, The French Dispatch, focuses almost entirely on this notion.

As a love letter to writers everywhere, Anderson’s next live-action film takes place in a fictional 20th Century French city, where an elaborate cast of journalists takes part in an American newspaper focusing on day-to-day events and reportage. Among the film’s ensemble cast, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Jeffrey Wright, Adrien Brody, Benicio del Toro, Owen Wilson, Léa Seydoux, Timothée Chalamet, and Lyna Khoudri join one another throughout three distinct storylines, each centering on non-fictional happenings during the era. The country’s May ’68 student occupation protests, for example, are portrayed through the eyes of Chalamet and Khoudri’s youthful characters — academics who seek change and take abnormal measures to achieve it. As a portrait of the newspaper’s founder, The French Dispatch delves into the harmony of human interconnectivity, and with a mind like Wes Anderson at the helm, you can expect to see plenty of elegant visuals, dubious wordplay, and profound symbolism.
