Short Cuts Cinema screens Maps to the Stars
Dir: David Cronenberg, 2014

Led by the loathsome yet funny and touching child-star Benjich 7.30pme, (Evan Bird) we witness the convoluted world of shallow, selfish celebrities and their minions, all of whom are about to be manipulated and destroyed by the young woman who literally represents the fruit of their twisted machinations, Agatha, (Mia Wasikowska) Benjie’s tormented, apparently psychotic sister. As much as it is a sharp, comic look at a vacant and corrupt world, Maps to the Stars is also a haunting ghost story.

Julianne Moore’s performance as Havana Seagrand won her the Best Actress award at Cannes Film Festival 2014.
