Everything You Need to Know about Timothée Chalamet in ‘The French Dispatch’
Long story short, he does and he doesn’t. You see Léa Seydoux’s character naked—she appears as the muse of an incarcerated artist in her chapter—but the closest we get is a scene in which Chalamet’s character jumps out of the bath, shielding his private parts, to share his manifesto with Lucinda.
Frances McDormand is his main scene partner
Chalamet has some great scene partners. Frances McDormand is the main one, coming straight off the back of her Oscar-winning turn in 2020’s Nomadland. And French-Algerian actor Lyna Khoudri plays his girlfriend, Juliette. In the coterie of young activists around him, few have speaking roles, but newcomer Mohamed Belhadjine plays his closest pal, Mitch Mitch.
No French is spoken here
The film might be set in France, but the script is in English, which may disappoint some fans who had hoped that Chalamet, who is part French, might use his second language in the role (like he did in 2019’s The King). He is American in the movie, using his real-life accent instead—even when Juliette speaks to him in French.
It’s not impossible for him to get Oscar love
It might seem way too early to start talking about 2022’s awards season, but don’t be surprised if The French Dispatch manages to ride out the hype to pick up some statuettes when the time comes. It’s a busy year for Chalamet, who also stars in the much-anticipated sci-fi epic Dune, directed by Denis Villeneuve and set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September. That said, The French Dispatch might do well at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which celebrates entire crews as well as individuals.
Anderson’s film, which has an almighty team in front of and behind the camera, will have its U.S. premiere at the New York Film Festival in October, so expect it to be at the forefront of film-industry minds come the time to vote.
It’s been a hot minute, but Chalamet’s time to shine once again is finally coming.
