World-changing events spectacularly disrupt the itinerary of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention in an American desert town circa 1955.

“ASTEROID CITY, the latest from Wes Anderson, is filled with the assiduous visuals, mythic faces and charming curiosities that you expect from this singular filmmaker. It’s comic and often wry, but like some of his other films, it has the soul of a tragedy... the film is about desire and death, small mysteries and cosmic unknowns and the stories that we make of all the stuff called life.” Manohla Dargis.
