Wes Anderson brings his signature style to 1955, the set of a Junior Stargazer/ Space Cadet convention in a fictional American desert town. Visually stunning and rife with quirky subplots, ASTEROID CITY is a retrofuturistic sci-fi comedy featuring a trove of Andersenian suspects: Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hanks, Steve Carell, Margot Robbie, Tilda Swinton, Adrian Brody, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Willem Defoe and, fresh from her Oscar-nominated role in THE WHALE, Hong Chau.
PG-13, 1h 45m.
"ASTEROID CITY's eccentricity, its elegance, its gaiety, and its sheer profusion of detail within the tableau frame make it such a pleasure. So, too, does its dapper styling of classic American pop culture." – Guardian
"A film that sneaks up on you – that fools you into thinking it's just a scattershot collection of discrete little details and gags... But the deeper this movie disappears into itself, the more its play-like rhythms begin to create their own rhymes." – indieWire
"Wes Anderson returns with one of his most dazzling, rich and playfully self-reflexive films to date, brought to eye-popping life by an all-timer ensemble." – Little White Lies
"ASTEROID CITY reminds you that Anderson remains what he's always been, despite what the AI bros might have you believe: completely inimitable." – Daily Telegraph (UK)
