What is Asteroid City about?
Wes Anderson is known for keeping a lot of the details of his films under wraps, and Asteroid City is no different. With the little we understand from the synopsis, the film will tell the story of a group of people who experience “world-changing events” in a fictional desert town in the 1950s:
The movie 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.
I’ve personally loved all of Wes Anderson’s films. They have an incredibly unique style, and after watching the trailer, I watched it five more times. It also made me want to go back through and watch his other films, especially The Grand Budapest Hotel. Ralph Fiennes was incredible in that film.
