The latest in a series of idyllic, fantastical pieces by Wes Anderson, The French Dispatch takes us to the fictional French village of Ennui-sur-Blasé to follow the lives of journalists at an outpost of an American magazine. Inspired by the magazine The New Yorker, the film plays out like an issue of a magazine itself, and is a colorful, unique ode to journalism and the stories within all of us.
This film is part of the Drive-In Movie Series presented by Morven Farm and UVA Arts: Office of the Provost and Vice Provost for the Arts.
