Asteroid City - Wes Anderson

Wes Anderson

The screenplay of the new film by Wes Anderson. Thousands of years ago an asteroid fell from the sky, creating a huge crater, in the centre of which a piece of asteroid rock remains. Once a year, a convention is held on the site, attracting astronomers, teachers, families with would-be teenage astronomers - as well as military personnel. As the stars begin to align, events occur which are startling, and completely unexpected.

This is Anderson at his comic best; it is also suffused with the grief caused by the death of the mother of one of the families - giving the film a profound emotional impact. The film stars Tom Hanks, Margot Robbie, Scarlet Johansson, and Tilda Swinton, as well as familiar faces from Anderson's previous films.
