Set in Hollywood, the land of the stars, this haunting story features outstanding performances from Julianne Moore (The Kid’s Are Alright, A Single Man) Golden Globe© nominee for Best Performance By An Actress for her role as famous but quickly fading actress Havana Segrand; Mia Wasikowska (Lawless, Stoker) as estranged pyromaniac Agatha Weiss; John Cusack (The Butler, High Fidelity) as TV psychologist Dr. Stafford Weiss; Olivia Williams (Anna Karenina, Sabotage) as his wife, Christina Weiss; Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga, Water For Elephants) as limo driver and struggling actor Jerome Fontana; and Evan Bird (Chained, The Killing) as Benjie, son of the Weiss family.
MAPS TO THE STARS follows a secret-filled Hollywood family on the verge of implosion. The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty; father Stafford (Cusack) who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals and mother Cristina (Williams) mostly looks after the career of their child star son Benjie (Bird). One of Stafford’s clients, Havana (Moore), 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 (Wasikowska), has recently been released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania and befriended a limo driver Jerome (Pattinson) who is also an aspiring actor. The result is a modern Hollywood Gothic about the ravenous 21st Century need for fame and validation – and the yearning, loss and fragility that lurk in the shadows underneath.
