It’s been a great sigh of relief Cannes Film Festival has finally happened this year. A whole host of films delayed from last year has taken giant steps towards general release like The French Dispatch.
Wes Anderson‘s delayed film just made it’s world premiere at the festival and buzz from the early reviews is great. Of your a fan of Anderson those lucky critics are calling it his best work in a long time. Searchlight pictures will be off course will be delighted so celebrate that news they have unveiled the film’s first clip.
The French Dispatch (aka The French Dispatch Of The Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun), is a New Yorker style magazine. Facing it’s final issue, the film will be based around three of the magazines stories and struggles to get those stories.
The clip below is entitled ‘Let’s deal with the typos’ which has Timothee Chalamet having a bath with Frances McDormand also in the scene. Delivering some vintage dry Anderson comedic wit…
