The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

The French Dispatch

Fri. 22 October 2021 — Thu. 28 October 2021

A loving ode to the history of print journalism, The French Dispatch is a film told in five parts, bringing to life stories from the final issue of a fictional American magazine published in a 20th century French city.

The story is told with all the whimsy and charming style that audiences have come to expect from its writer and director Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums/The Grand Budapest Hotel). Its ensemble cast includes Benicio del Toro, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Léa Seydoux, Tilda Swinton, and Bill Murray.
