Ella, Gracie, and Willan Faris in Wes Anderson’s “Asteroid City” (2023)

Wes Anderson's "Asteroid City" (2023) features not only actors from his usual ensemble (such as Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, and William Dafoe) but also Scarlet Johansson for her first live-action Anderson film (after her voice work in his 2018 "Isle of Dogs") and Tom Hanks in his first work with Anderson. But the stars of the movie are the triplets who play Schwartzman's character's young daughters Andromeda (Ella Faris), Pandora (Gracie Faris), and Cassiopeia (Willian Faris), who respond to a waitress who calls them "princesses" with the announcement that they are a vampire, a mummy, and a fairy, respectively. And they just get better from then on. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 25 June 2023)
