Synopsis
A Hollywood family with some explosive secrets finds their perfect world unraveling in this satire from director David Cronenberg and writer Bruce Wagner. His wildly popular "Hour of Personal Power" TV program having earned him loyal following among the Hollywood elite, self-help guru Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) caters to his high-powered clientele as his wife Cristina (Olivia Williams) manages the career of their 13-year-old son Benjie (Evan Bird), a former child star who's just returned home following a stint in rehab. Meanwhile, determined to start over after being released from a psychiatric hospital, burn-scarred Agatha Weiss (Mia Wasikowska) arrives in L.A. and strikes up a friendship with a local limo driver (Robert Pattinson) before landing a job as personal assistant to Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), an aging Hollywood starlet whose career seems to be on the downturn. As a major motion picture about her celebrated mother Clarice (Sarah Gadon) goes into production, Havana comes undone by the realization that she may never emerge from her mother's formidable shadow. Subsequently adrift in a world of excess and artifice, Agatha seeks the one thing that could still give her life true meaning -- redemption. Little does Agatha realize, in this town any attempt at achieving real substance leaves you dangerously exposed to the circling sharks who value self-preservation above all else.

Movie Critics
Los Angeles Times
"Things all come crashing together in a series of startlingly bad behaviors, spilled secrets and devastating consequences....It's hard to dismiss the film's pitch dark ironies, painful truths and incendiary metaphors."
Gary Goldstein (26 Feb 2015, )
RogerEbert.com
3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he movie sticks with you. It's a fleeting nightmare that refuses to fade."
Matt Zoller Seitz (28 Feb 2015, )
Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he film works as a dark comic blast into the dazzle and depravity of Hollyweird. The great Cronenberg, with the help of gifted cinematographer Peter Suschitzky, keeps us locked to reality even as the film hurtles into the absurd."
Peter Travers (26 Feb 2015, )
Total Film
5 stars out of 5 -- "Moore does nerveless, peerless work, eclipsing even some of the soul-baring she’s done for PT Anderson."
James Mottram (26 Sep 2014, )
