ASTEROID CITY (adapted from a “hypothetical” play) takes place in a fictional desert town, circa 1955. Synopsis: the itinerary of the annual 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. A theatrical ensemble character piece; a poetic meditation on the meaning of life.
The film stars Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hanks, Jeffrey Wright, Tilda Swinton, Margot Robbie, Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, and Jake Ryan, among others.
In addition to the screenplay, the book contains a gallery of colour images, and a conversation about the film with Wes Anderson, Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman, and Jake Ryan.
