Our take

A scorching desert town is the setting for one of Wes Anderson’s warmest films, in which a potential alien encounter is the catalyst for strange advances in both science and human connection. Directly riffing on his work’s theatricality, Asteroid City is among Anderson’s funniest and most moving.
