Cannes Review: Wes Anderson's 'The French Dispatch' – Deadline


Inspired by his love of The New Yorker, Anderson created a film that features characters based on real-life counterparts in the magazine. One story takes inspiration from Mavis Gallant’s article “The Events in May: A Paris Notebook”, part of which is about student occupation protests during the 1968 riots.

In an interview with a French publication, Anderson revealed that the story of his upcoming movie is about a journalist who lives in France. The plot does not focus on freedom of the press but sheds light on troubles reporters face in exotic places.
