The legendary David Cronenberg (EASTERN PROMISES, A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE) forges both a wicked social satire and a very human ghost story from our celebrity-obsessed culture. Meet the Weiss family: Stafford (John Cusack), a famed TV self-help therapist; Cristina (Olivia Williams) who is managing the career of their disaffected child-star son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a fresh graduate of rehab at age 13. Along with other LA players (the cast includes Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska and Robert Pattinson), the make their way in a sun-soaked Southern California rife with money, dreams, fame, envy, angst, yearning and relentless hauntings.
