Synopsis

In the 1960s in the French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé, journalists work on the American magazine The French Dispatch. Curmudgeonly editor Arthur Howitzer Jr. (Bill Murray) runs the magazine, which covers "world politics, the arts high and low, and diverse stories of human interest."

Three of those stories concern an artist in prison, student riots and a kidnapping and feature Adrien Brody as art dealer Julian Cadazio, Henry Winkler and Bob Balaban as Cadazio’s uncles, Benicio del Toro as incarcerated artist Moses Rosenthaler, Léa Seydoux as his prison guard and muse, Jeffrey Wright as food journalist Roebuck Wright, Frances McDormand as journalist Lucinda Krementz, and Lyna Khoudri and Timothée Chalamet as student revolutionaries.
