Kamloops Film Festival: Maps to the Stars
March 9, 2015 @ 7:00 pm
Monday, march 9 at 7pm
Canada/ USA/ Germany/ France
Directed by David Cronenberg
In English Drama
Canadian master David Cronenberg strips Hollywood b are in this wicked satire of the movie business. Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore) is a desperate middle-aged actress scheming to land the lead in a remake of a film her mother starred in years ago. A round this imploding star revolves a constellation of shady Tinseltown types: Dr. Stafford Weiss (John Cusack), a TV psychologist and self-help guru whose teen-idol son is going off the rails; Agatha (Mia Wasikowska), a pyromaniac who gets hired as Havana’s assistant; Jerome (Robert Pattinson), a li mo driver, struggling actor and aspiring screenwriter; and various wives, agents, and phantoms who stroll periodically through the carnage. Gleefully dissecting a milieu driven by all the wrong values, Maps to the Stars peels back Tinseltown’s skin-deep facade to reveal a dystopia that’s at once utterly alien and eerily recognizable.
