French Dispatch

He’s back! With his welcoming pastels, frames full of sharp symmetry that would cut right through your heart and to top it all, a moustached Timothée Chalamet, he's outdone himself. Yes, we (and what seems like all of the Internet) are talking about Wes Anderson’s new directorial The French Dispatch.

In what’s being called a ‘love letter to journalists’, Anderson’s new movie promises a romantic journey of an American newspaper’s Paris outpost. It is a retelling of three stories published in the final installment of the fictional paper about life in France: an artist in lockup, two revolutionary kids, and a kidnapping that pairs well with wine. And, of course, the depiction of these stories is with black-and-white intercuts.

The cast features Wes Anderson regulars and newcomers in stunning costumes and headgear- Adrien Brody, Timothée Chalamet, Benicio del Toro, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, and Owen Wilson. 

The poster too has a character of its own, with the title in the style of the set’s signage, while people zip on mopeds and sip coffee in outdoor cafes in the background. There's a gun-toting man and police cars on chase, and a lot of people on the balcony enjoying the view. Illustrated to perfection, the snippets of the French scenery are as vivid and colourful as the film’s narrative.
