TUESDAY TRAILERS: MAPS TO THE STARS

I dig Cronenberg. This film, opening some time early next year is all about celebrity, but of course because it is Cronenberg there will be a dark side to it all. John Cusack plays L.A. psychotherapist and life coach Stafford Weiss who has made his fortune with self-help books promising happiness. His wife Cristina (Olivia Williams) is the overbearing manager of their 13-year-old son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a TV star and recent drug rehab grad. Their estranged daughter, Agatha (Wasikowska), has just been released from a psychiatric hospital and befriends limo driver and aspiring actor Jerome (Pattinson). Among Stafford’s celebrity clients is Havana Segrand (Moore), a fading star who dreams of reprising her late mother Clarice’s (Sarah Gadon) starring role. Ambitions, ghosts, death, and all manner of vices bedevil the cast of characters. What do you think? Plans to see it?


Summary: A tour into the heart of a Hollywood family chasing celebrity, one another and the relentless ghosts of their pasts...Opens 2015.
