The French Dispatch

Wes Anderson’s new film has been described as a ”love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th century French city” and in classic Wes Anderson style we are invited to a world full of colourful characters and meticulously designed sets and shots. The stellar cast includes names like Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Adrian Brody, Frances McDormand, Jeffrey Wright, Benicio del Toro and Tilda Swinton.

Goodbye Kansas were proud to contribute with VFX to this great film, and it was a true honour to be part of Wes Anderson’s unique universe.
