Wes Anderson's 'The French Dispatch' available on Blu-ray™ just in time for the holidays

From the visionary mind of Academy Award® nominee Wes Anderson, this, his tenth feature, brings to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century French city.

It is available now on digital and Disney+.

The French Dispatch stars Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Jeffrey Wright and Bill Murray, among many of Anderson's frequent collaborators. It also stars French-Algerian actress Lyna Khoudri and everyone's favorite style icon these days, Timothée Chalamet.

The film's synopsis goes as follows: "On the death of its beloved Kansas-born editor Arthur Howitzer, Jr., (Bill Murray) the staff of The French Dispatch, a widely circulated American magazine based in the French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé, convenes to write his obituary. Memories of Howitzer flow into the creation of four stories: a travelogue of the seediest sections of the city itself from The Cycling Reporter; “The Concrete Masterpiece,” about a criminally insane painter, his guard and muse, and his ravenous dealers;“Revisions to a Manifesto,” a chronicle of love and death on the barricades at the height of student revolt; and “The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner,” a suspenseful tale of drugs, kidnapping and fine dining."

Running at 107 minutes and packed with great visuals by Anderson, this may just turn out to be the best Passover and Easter gift ever.
