Hi Everyone! I hope you had a positive week. Welcome back to the Pineapple Chicken Blog 🙂 For those who are new, my blog covers positivity, culture and lifestyle.
Wes Anderson – The French Dispatch
I think many of you are looking forward to the new Wes Anderson film released this week in London. Not surprisingly, the critics are loving it! I have always loved his films – the colours, the elegancy and eccentricity make them one of a kind.
The French Dispatch is a tribute to the New Yorker Magazine but the 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”, centring on four stories.
To celebrate his work, I joined my sister and her friend to visit 180 the Strand, where they are holding an exhibition displaying the real props and costumes! I highly recommend it. I had never visited the 180 the Strand space before and I didn’t realise how big it is!
There are many rooms to explore and each room is unique and covers different characters of the movie. There are great opportunities to take some photos and the cafe at the end of the exhibition is really worth visiting.
The exhibition is only available until the 14th November, so you will have to hurry! Tickets can be booked here.
Let me know in the comments below where you think which other areas I should explore in London and check out my vlog below for a visual walkthrough of my day out!
Just for easy reference, these are the places I visited:
- 180 The Strand
- Wun’s Tea Room & Bar (Reservations can be made here)
With Sweet & Sour Love,
