The latest feature from site favourite David Cronenberg, the highly anticipated Maps to the Stars, has been confirmed for a 26th September 2014 release by Entertainment One UK Ltd, who have also released a UK trailer for the film, which you can watch below. The film was written by Bruce Wagner (State of the Union) stars Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon, and Evan Bird, and dramatically explores the demons of our celebrity obsessed society.
The Weiss family are an archetypical Hollywood dynasty – Dr Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) is a psychotherapist whose self-help books have made him a fortune. His wife Cristina (Olivia Williams) is the overbearing mom-ager of their thirteen-year old son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a prodigious child star fresh out of drug rehab and their estranged daughter Agatha (Mia Wasikowska) has recently been released from a psychiatric hospital. Agatha is now back in Hollywood making friends with a wannabe actor/writer limo driver named Jerome (Robert Pattinson) and with a new job as PA to one of Stafford’s clients – the neurotic and tempestuous actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), whose dream of reprising her dead mother’s starring role from the 1960s is beginning to haunt her.
"Maps to the Stars is a tense and scary movie, unwholesome in the hold that it has on the audience."
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"Cronenberg has made a film that you want to unsee – and then see and unsee again." –
Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
