It was one of our 15 TIFF movies to watch for, and now that the trailer for Maps to the Stars is here, you’ll see why in two short minutes!
Julianne Moore (soon to be seen in Mockingjay Part 1 as President Coin!) stars as a washed-up movie star who is hoping to make a comeback by portraying the role her icon mother played that made her famous in the film’s reimagining. Her mother died tragically in a fire and her shadow clearly looms large over Moore.
The film is from David Cronenberg, who reunites with his Cosmopolis star Robert Pattinson, who appears to play a limo driver who finds himself interconnected with characters played by Moore and Mia Wasikowska -- who winds up being Moore’s personal assistant.
And then there’s the appearance of one of our favorite actors, John Cusack! All in all, between the cast and Cronenberg, Maps to the Stars could add up to one interesting night at the movies.
Look for it in early 2015.
