The French Dispatch
‘The French Dispatch’ is the European edition of the ‘Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun’ – a factual, weekly report on the subjects of world politics, the arts (high and low), fashion, fancy cuisine/fine drink, and diverse stories of human-interest set in faraway quartiers. On the death of the Editor-in-Chief, the editorial staff decide to publish a last, memorial edition highlighting the three best stories which appeared over the ten-year existence of the magazine. The stories involve an artist sentenced to life imprisonment for a double homicide; student riots, and a kidnapping resolved by a chef.
THE FRENCH DISPATCH brings to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century French city. It stars Bill Murray, Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, LÃ©a Seydoux, Frances McDormand, TimothÃ©e Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Stephen Park, and Owen Wilson.
