Actor Griffin Dunne took to Instagram today and gave a little preview of Wes Anderson’s “The French Dispatch.” The much- anticipated film will be unveiled next Monday in Cannes to rapturous audiences, no doubt. I already love all the names of the characters. You can see some of them, like Zeffirelli, in Griffin’s photos.
Dunne writes: “The French Dispatch finally premiers in Cannes. The audience is going to go nuts for it. My character didn’t even have a name and it was most fun I’ve ever had on a movie. Great food with hilarious actors at night and living in Wes’s world during the day in a town you would have thought he imagined called Angouleme.”
A Wes Anderson movie is what we need right now: a big, fluffy dessert that sends us to bed with beautiful dreams and flights of fancy.
