“A singular vision of life on Earth.”
“ASTEROID CITY is a delightfully profound desert charmer — by far the director’s best effort since THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, and in some respects the most poignant thing he’s ever made.”
“The overall effect is one of wonderment, eccentricity and heartache that will connect deeply with anyone who recently spent an extended period stuck in close proximity with other human beings.”
ASTEROID CITY takes place in a fictional American desert town circa 1955. The itinerary of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention (organized to bring together students and parents from across the country for fellowship and scholarly competition) is spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events.
