The French Dispatch is a love letter to journalists
Wes Anderson is always impressing the public with his masterpieces. It seems like people always look forward to the color he brings to the screens.
The latest announcement is the release of The French Dispatch by this exemplary filmmaker.
The Release Date Of The French Dispatch
The trailer just came out yesterday and people cannot stop talking about it.
As far as we know, the movie is releasing on the 24th of July, 2020.
The Cast Of The French Dispatch
The lineup cast for this Wes Anderson movie is star-studded.
We see Bill Murray play the role of Arthur Howitzer Jr., the editor of The French Dispatch.
We have writers whose pieces directly appear in the trailer- Tilda Swinton plays Berensen whereas Jeffrey Wright plays Roebuck Wright.
The other cast members include Benicio Del Toro, Frances McDorman, Adrien Brody, Timothee Chalamet and Owen Wilson.
We also see other notable stars in the trailer who form the cast for The French Dispatch.
The Plot Of The French Dispatch
The trailer does not offer us a lot to sit and breakdown. However, we do have a crux of what we make out of this Wes Anderson comedy.
The plot is about how Bill Murray’s character turns the travel log columns into “The French Dispatch”. The Frech Dispatch is a weekly magazine as the trailer portrays.
It talks about the magazine’s final issue. It is set in the 20th-century French publication world. He assembles the best journalists to write for his paper.
In the light of the trailer, we see the Liberty Kansas Evening Sun look back upon their greatest stories.
The trailer shows us three stories.
The first story is The Concrete Masterpiece by J.K.L.Berensen. The next story is Revisions to a Manifesto by Lucinda Krementz. The third one in the list is The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner by Roebuck Wright.
The Concrete Masterpiece is a story about an artist, Moses Rosenthaler. We gather that he is a little psychotic in nature given her prison uniform reads “pychopathe”.
Other characters in our first story include Lea Seydoux who plays his prison guard and muse and Adrien Brody who plays an art dealer.
Our second story is Revisions to a Manifesto which is clearly a story about revolution. Maybe, inspired by the 1968 events of the students’ riots in Paris.
In this particular segment, we see Timothee Chalamet play Zeffirelli and his beloved (maybe) as well as a fellow student, Juliette (Lyna Khoudri’s character). The writer, Krementz also appears as herself here.
A food critic story is the third in line, The Private Dining room.
It is about an Asian chef who is a professional in “police cooking”. The role belongs to Steve Park. We also witness Saoirse Ronan in this part.
