Maps to the Stars

15 yrs 115 minutes 2014 6.2

In director David Cronenberg's satirical Maps To The Stars the Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Stafford is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Cristina mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie, 13, a child star. One of Stafford's clients, Havana, is an actress who dreams of shooting a remake of the movie that made her mother, Clarice, a star in the 60s. Clarice is dead now and visions of her come to haunt Havana at night... Adding to the toxic mix, Benjie has just come off a rehab program he joined when he was 9 and his sister, Agatha, has recently been released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania and befriended a limo driver Jerome who is also an aspiring actor. The film has received rave reviews in the British press. It was also nominated for the Golden Palm in Cannes where Julianne Moore was named Best Actress for her role in Maps To The Stars.
