Storyline

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.

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Jerome is driving Havana, they are in a long wheelbase 'L' version of Lincoln Town Car, when they've arrived at her house and are having sex in the back, they are in a standard wheelbase version (it has a shorter quarter glass section in the rear door window). See more »

What trash...
26 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

I watched this absolutely horrible movie called "Maps to the Stars" because some of the cast members were actors I enjoy seeing perform. Sadly, they were ALL wasted in this send-it-to-the-round file film about a totally dysfunctional family in Hollywood. The dad is a self-help charlatan on TV, the wife is a mental-wreck of a woman, the son is a teen-sensation brat who is haunted by visions of a dead fan he met briefly in a hospital, and the daughter has just been released from a mental institution for setting her home one fire. Added to the mix is a washed up actress who uses the dad's services as a "psychiatrist". All of the characters are ghastly people, and the language is over-the-top vulgar... when by the end of the film the majority of them end up on the wrong end of the stick, you really don't care. I suppose it might have been "amusing" to people in the TV and movie industries, but to the rest of us they're all a bunch of unsympathetic users and losers who don't deserve the fame and fortune they squander on a daily basis. What trash. Hideous. F-
