Maps to the Stars

"You want that role, but you're not gunna get it." Another trailer has popped up online for the new David Cronenberg film premiering at the Cannes Film Festival next week. The film, Maps to the Stars, is a "complex look at Hollywood and what it reveals about Western culture" as told through the Weiss family. This trailer focuses mostly on Julianne Moore, who seems to be the mother of the family, an actress in pursuit of a role. The cast also features Mia Wasikowska, who is the other central character around which everything revolves, as well as Robert Pattinson but he doesn't get as much screen time in this one. I'm not sure what to make of this, a big Hollywood dynasty story, David Lynch-esque, but is that it? Take a look.

Here's the second sales/promo trailer for David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars, via The Playlist:

The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Stafford (Cusack) is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Cristina (Williams) mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie (Evan Bird), 13, a child star. One of Stafford's clients, Havana (Moore), is an actress who dreams of shooting a remake of the movie that made her mother a star in the 60s. Adding to the toxic mix, Benjie is just off a rehab program he joined when he was 9 and his sister (Wasikowska) has recently been released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania and befriended a limo driver (Pattinson) who is also an aspiring actor. Maps to the Stars is directed by David Cronenberg (Scanners, Videodrome, The Fly, Naked Lunch, Eastern Promises, Cosmopolis), from a screenplay by Bruce Wagner (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3). Maps to the Stars premieres at the Cannes Film Festival this May.

"Pretentious" that was. And the longer it is not available, the more pretentious we should consider it.
