Wes Anderson pays tribute to the print media, especially The New Yorker, with its legendary writers, metropolitan finesse and spectacular typographic layout. The eponymous The French Dispatch is a fictional magazine, devoted to French intellectual and cultural life, published in the late 1960s by a gallery of brilliant American expats in the town of Ennui-Sur-Blasé in the south of France. Tilda Swinton plays the art critic JKL Berensen, Frances McDormand plays Lucinda Krementz, a writer covering the turbulent student revolution, while also getting into an affair with its young leader Zeffirelli (Timothée Chalamet). Jeffrey Wright appears as an art critic, and Bill Murray as editor-in-chief. There is everything we’ve come to love in films by the director of Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums: precisely composed frames, fantasy at levels aspiring to leading abstract painters, and fabulous roles directed down to a T. But there is also something more - an important message! Anderson shows that storytelling is the only effective way of understanding a chaotic world.
