Asteroid City



9th January 2024

Asteroid City

Director : Wes Anderson

Running Time: 105 mins

Country/Year: USA, Spain, Germany 2023

Cert 12A






A monochrome 1950s American TV show presents a play set in the American West. In the play, presented in colour, photographer Augie Steenbeck and his children make a stop in the remote desert town of Asteroid City (population: 87), to repair his car. Whilst there he encounters some unusual characters, and life from another world. Full of Anderson's trademark  eccentricities, and beautifully, painstakingly, lovingly crafted to within an inch of its life, this film demonstrates that Anderson can still surprise. With a starry ensemble cast, including Tom Hanks and Tilda Swinton, this is, according to Empire, 'truly delightful'.
