In July ‘The French Dispatch'

After a difficult year for Hollywood and audiences alike, one of the most eagerly anticipated films of 2020, Wes Anderson’s ninth feature film, The French Dispatch, is finally getting its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. The French Dispatch is characterized as Anderson’s love letter to journalism and is based on an American newspaper of the same name set in the fictional French hamlet of Ennui-Sur-Blasé. There will be plenty of whimsy and weirdness in this film, as it weaves together three different storylines and various characters, including one on the May 68 student occupation movements, as in all Anderson films.

In July, ‘The French Dispatch'

This may be Anderson’s strongest cast yet, including Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Elisabeth Moss, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan, Christopher Waltz, and that’s not even the full cast! Only three films have been announced for the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, including Anderson’s. Annette, a musical drama starring Adam Driver and Marrion Cotillard that marks Leos Carax’s comeback to film nine years after Holy Motors in 2012, is also premiere at Cannes.
