Wes Anderson’s stylish, delightful and meticulously designed Cannes Competition contender features wit, romance and tribulations at a stargazing convention. Starring Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson and Tom Hanks.

The tiny desert town of Asteroid City (population 87) plays host to brilliant students and their parents as they gather for the 1955 Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention encouraging fellowship and scholarly competition. Amongst the parents are war and sports photographer Augustine (Schwartzman), who’s avoiding dealing with a family crisis, and the glamorous film star Midge (Johansson).

The students, while geniuses, have to overcome social awkwardness as they show off their incredible inventions. The inevitable flirtations and fledgling romances are rudely disrupted by a shocking world-changing event. As General Gibson (Jeffrey Wright) says to the kids: “If you wanted a nice quiet life, you chose the wrong time to be born.”

Featuring a stacked cast including Steve Carrell, Maya Hawke, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, Margot Robbie, and many more!

In anticipation of Asteroid City, QFT take a stylised and symmetrical look back at some of Wes Anderson's previous work.
