The French Dispatch — Wes Anderson’s latest film — is a tribute to journalists in general and to The New Yorker magazine in particular. The film is about a made-up American weekly magazine based in the fictional French town of Ennui-sur-Blasé. Apparently, The French Dispatch is going to be an American story of journalism set in France countryside, with the storyline being split into three parts — each full of high-profile celebrities. In fact, The French Dispatch mostly stars Wes Anderson’s favourites.
