December 11, 2014
Directed by: David Cronenberg; Starring: Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson; Genre: Drama; Age: 16+; Time: 111min
Director David Cronenberg forges both a wicked social satire and a very human ghost story from our celebrity-obsessed culture. Meet the Weiss family, who are making their way in a sun-soaked Southern California rife with money, dreams, fame, envy, angst, yearning and relentless hauntings. Stafford Weiss is a famed TV self-help therapist, whose “Hour of Personal Power” has brought him an A-list celebrity clientele. Meanwhile, Cristina Weiss has her work cut out managing the career of their disaffected child-star son, Benjie, a fresh graduate of rehab at age 13.
