New York Film Festival 2014: Maps To The Stars Gets A Trailer

Posted by Rudie Obias On August - 21 - 2014 0 Comment

It’s that time of the year again. The 52nd annual New York Film Festival is in full effect starting on September 26. It’s my favorite time of the year where New York City gets the very best in indie and world cinema! 2014 is shaping up to be a good year with David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars.” Check out the trailer below:

Read the film synopsis (via Wikipedia):

“The film follows the lives of the Weiss family, an archetypical Hollywood dynasty: Dr. Stafford Weiss is a psychotherapist, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; his wife Cristina manages the career of their thirteen-year-old son, Benjie, a child star, who recently came out of a drug rehabilitation program, which he entered at the age of nine; their daughter Agatha, totally shunned by her family, has recently been released from a sanatorium in Florida, where she was admitted for the treatment of criminal pyromania.

After her release from the sanatorium, she travels back to L.A. and befriends a limo driver who is also a struggling actor and aspiring screenwriter, Jerome Fontana. Using her friendship with Carrie Fisher, whom she befriended on Twitter, she becomes the personal assistant to Havana Segrand, one of Stafford’s clients and an actress. Segrand is having issues with purported sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her mother, and she wants to shoot a remake of the 1960s movie which made her mother, Clarice, famous. Clarice has been dead for sometime now and visions of her ghost come to haunt Havana at night.

Other family issues rear their head as we discover that Agatha used to play at marrying her brother, Benjie, and, on the night of the fire, she drugged him and then set fire to the house, resulting in her disfigurement due to burns.”

“Maps to the Stars” features Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon, with John Cusack, and Robert Pattinson. Directed by David Cronenberg.
