“Filled with the assiduous visuals, mythic faces and charming curiosities that you expect from this singular filmmaker.”~New York Times

Aroview: A parade of caricatures converge on the tiny desert town of "Asteroid City": famous for it's rock in a hole. When things get ... extra-terrestrial they find themselves stranded together under government quarantine.

Meanwhile, they're all actually seasoned method actors putting this whole small-town show together for the Broadway stage.

Dir. Anderson has nothing new to deliver here. The grieving husband, misguided youths and existential angst have all been done with greater depth in his earlier films. What he does deliver is yet another seamlessly, detailed, funny and arguably flawless picture. For his loyal viewers, this will be like catching up with an old friend.
