Tommy Lee Jones,
The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Stafford is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Cristina mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie, 13, a child star. One of Stafford's clients, Havana, 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, has recently been released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania and befriended a limo driver Jerome who is also an aspiring actor.

In an almost 50-year career, this was the very first time that David Cronenberg ever filmed anything in the United States (his previous movies were mostly shot in Canada or the UK). The film shot for 5 days in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills (location manager Scott Trimble) and 24 days in Cronenberg's native Toronto (location manager Marty Dejczak). See more »
OMG that movie is the most amazing movie ever! not only because I adore Robert Pattinson and I love Julianne Moore but it is so interestingly twisted sick and brilliant! just typical Cronenberg :) I really love it, incredible cast and interesting concept, Julianne Moore and Mia Wasikowska were spectacular and Julianne definitely deserves an Oscar for her role in it. Robert Pattinson was stunning and hot :) I enjoyed every single detail in it even the violent speech and explicit sex scenes. I highly recommend it, a must see! it's a 110 minutes of joy and fun, the black satirical view of Hollywood life that Cronenberg established is really adorably joyful and interesting I have seen it three times so far and I could see it again and again. :)
