An all-star cast assembles for David Cronenberg’s new movie Maps to the Stars. John Cusack, Julianne Moore and Mia Wasikowska are joined by Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon, and Evan Bird in a film that delves into the murky world of a celebrity-obsessed society.
The official synopsis for the film reads;
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 released in UK cinemas from September 26 2014.
