Vogue UK: “What Makes Margot Tenenbaum’s Style So Good, Even 20 Years Later“
“Margot’s refined style remains one of the movie’s calling cards two decades later. A gifted playwright who has been adopted into the Tenenbaum family, Margot is an outsider. That’s only underscored by her fashion sense. She’s decidedly more fashion-forward than the rest of the Tenenbaums. But her looks, while distinctive, are never over-styled. In one scene, she’s smoking in the bathroom while painting her toes and wearing a tight, nude slip dress. You get the sense that she does this very thing – in the same exact outfit – every single day.”
W: “On the Scene of the French Dispatch“
“[Owen] Wilson’s mother, Laura, a photographer, is another set regular, snapping the action between takes. Here, she shares her photographs of the French Dispatch set, in Angoulême, a town in southwestern France, and, along with Anderson and Stockhausen, gives us firsthand details about the making of the film.”
New Yorker: “The New Yorker Writers and Editors Who Inspired ‘The French Dispatch‘
“Next month, Anderson’s latest film, “The French Dispatch,” about a magazine in mid-century France that bears a striking resemblance to The New Yorker, will première in theatres across the country. With a star-filled cast that includes Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Timothée Chalamet, the film traces the compilation of an issue of the magazine during a series of chapters, four devoted to the creation of individual articles. There are many things that the filmmaker gets right, as well as a few that slightly miss the mark (perhaps deliberately so). “

Royal: Look, I know I’m going to be the bad guy on this one, but I just want to say the last six days have been the best six days of probably my whole life.
Narrator: Immediately after making this statement, Royal realized that it was true.
