SBIFF 2015: David Cronenberg's Cannes-winning "Maps to the Stars"

Julianne Moore's Cannes-winning performance will screen at 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival next week!

Theatrical and VOD opening on February 27th!

Meet the Weiss family, who are making their way in Hollywood rife with money, fame, envy, and relentless hauntings. Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) is a famed TV self-help therapist with an A-list celebrity clientele. Meanwhile, Cristina Weiss (Olivia Williams) has her work cut out managing the career of their disaffected child-star son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a fresh graduate of rehab at age 13.

Connecting the savage beauty of writer Bruce Wagner’s Los Angeles with the riveting filmmaking of director David Cronenberg and a stellar ensemble cast (Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Carrie Fisher & Robert Pattinson) to take a tour into the darkly comic heart of a Hollywood family chasing celebrity, one another and the relentless ghosts of their pasts.

The result is a modern Hollywood Gothic at once about the ravenous 21st Century need for fame and validation - and the yearning, loss and fragility that lurk in the shadows underneath.

Focus World will release the film in theaters and VOD on February 27th.
