Asteroid City (2023)
From director Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Darjeeling Limited) Asteroid City takes place in a fictional American desert town circa 1955 in which 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.
