White Wall Cinema Presents – The Socially Distanced February Screen
February 4 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
THE FRENCH DESPATCH
Known for his meticulous attention to detail, director Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Isle Of Dogs, Moonrise Kingdom, The Royal Tenenbaums) presents what is easily his most accomplished film to date in this love letter to journalism centred on the French outpost of the (fictional but clearly based on The New Yorker) Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun newspaper. Three different stories muse on some of the paper’s key journalistic achievements across its lifetime (1925-1975) on the occasion of the production of the final issue, owing to the death of the paper’s founder Arthur Howitzer Jr. (Bill Murray). Literary sketches of life that include an unstable artistic genius, student protest movements, kidnappings and more are brought to life by a dream cast that includes Timothée Chalamet, Frances McDormand, Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Jeffrey Wright, Owen Wilson and many more. Outrageously visually rich, wryly comic, ferociously tender, Anderson challenges the audience to live in a world of carefully planned haphazard overloaded sensorial detail that creates a work the New Yorker itself considers ‘perhaps Anderson’s best film to-date’ which is ‘necessary to see twice in order to see it fully even once’.
