America, 1955. A grieving photographer and his four children find themselves stranded in the remote Asteroid City after their car breaks down. They’re soon joined by dozens of people who’ve arrived for the final of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention. However, a dramatic development during a rare astronomical phenomenon leaves the visitors stuck together in the tiny desert town for much longer than they’d anticipated…
Featuring one of the most star-studded ensemble casts in recent memory, Asteroid City is Wes Anderson at his most stylish and playful. Overflowing with humour and visual ideas, this is also one of Anderson’s more heartfelt recent films. Amid all the deadpan whimsy, there are also unexpected moments of warmth and romance.
Starring Tom Hanks, Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Jeffrey Wright and many more.
“★★★★ With every new shot, your eyes dart around the screen, grabbing at all the painterly little jokes and embellishments, each getting a micro-laugh”
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“★★★★★ Asteroid City is Anderson’s most complete, rich and surprising film to date”
- David Jenkins, Little White Lies
