    Synopsis


    Maps to the Stars
    A Hollywood family with some explosive secrets finds their perfect world unraveling in this satire from director David Cronenberg and writer Bruce Wagner. His wildly popular "Hour of Personal Power" TV program having earned him loyal following among the Hollywood elite, self-help guru Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) caters to his high-powered clientele as his wife Cristina (Olivia Williams) manages the career of their 13-year-old son Benjie (Evan Bird), a former child star who's just returned home following a stint in rehab. Meanwhile, determined to start over after being released from a psychiatric hospital, burn-scarred Agatha Weiss (Mia Wasikowska) arrives in L.A. and strikes up a friendship with a local limo driver (Robert Pattinson) before landing a job as personal assistant to Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), an aging Hollywood starlet whose career seems to be on the downturn. As a major motion picture about her celebrated mother Clarice (Sarah Gadon) goes into production, Havana comes undone by the realization that she may never emerge from her mother's formidable shadow. Subsequently adrift in a world of excess and artifice, Agatha seeks the one thing that could still give her life true meaning -- redemption. Little does Agatha realize, in this town any attempt at achieving real substance leaves you dangerously exposed to the circling sharks who value self-preservation above all else. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A crazy tale of Hollywood and of some of the people who reside there. We have a movie star who wants to be picked to star in an upcoming movie, but her life is so messed up; a girl who took drugs and set her family home on fire, comes back, released from a psycho ward wearing elbow length leather gloves in the dead heat of California sunshine (they cover the scars from said fire), her father a TV personality, her mother who is a nervous wreck, her brother who is a child star who just came out of the psycho ward; a limo driver who just wants to be famous. A good ensemble of actors: Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska and Robert Pattinson. A cameo appearance by Carrie Fisher and Sarah Gadon.

      What a cast and under Cronenberg's direction. Some love Woody Allen, Cronenberg is my equivalent. I always enjoy seeing him get such talent and then what he does with it. He pushes them to performances you don't see normally.

      I love this movie. I like all the actors. The family that is portrayed is so dysfunctional, it makes you realize there are other families out there very dysfunctional.

      If you liked Cosmopolis or David Cronenberg films then this will be a great movie for you. If you don't get his style of movie making you won't like it. This movie isn't for everybody.

      A in depth drama from most of the actors! It defiantly draws you in even on some of the slow scenes!
