Maps to the Stars

mapstothestarsA deeply cynical, satirical look at Hollywood as we follow a fortysomething movie star (Julianne Moore) who’s desperate for a comeback; a bratty teen star (Evan Bird); and a peculiar young woman (Mia Wasikowska) with burnt arms who may or may not be looking for revenge. The cast is the whole show here, with Moore in a standout, no-holds-barred performance. The story aims for the jugular and its provocations entertain at times… but this is ultimately painfully pointless.

2014-Canada-U.S. 111 min. Color. Directed by David Cronenberg. Screenplay: Bruce Wagner. Cast: Julianne Moore (Havana Segrand), Mia Wasikowska (Agatha Weiss), John Cusack (Stafford Weiss), Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon… Carrie Fisher.

Trivia: Fisher plays herself. Viggo Mortensen and Rachel Weisz were allegedly considered for roles.

Cannes: Best Actress (Moore).
