Wes Anderson and Lea Seydoux attended The French Dispatch Paris Gala screening on Sunday.

At Cinema UGC Normandie in Paris, Anderson celebrated the recent release of his new film. Anderson attended the screening wearing a brown velvet suit, complete with matching brown shoes and a brown tie. Seydoux turned heads with her modest-yet-fashionable, knee-length black dress and black boots.

Critics say it is Anderson’s most “freewheeling” film, which is saying a lot. The French Dispute follows a fictional 20th-century French city that brings to life a collection of stories. Written, produced and directed by Anderson, this comedy-drama reveals three different storylines as the French foreign bureau of a fictional Kansas newspaper creates its final issue. The film, starring Seydoux and Timothee Chalamet, was inspired by New Yorker editors Harold Ross and William Shawn.  

The film, released on October 22, was filmed from November 2018 through March 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic, in Angouleme, France.
