Thesp portrays psychotherapist and life coach

John Cusack appears especially severe in this first publicity photo from his new role in David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars,” the director’s long-in-development thriller about celebrity obsession.

In the role, Cusack plays Los Angeles-based psychotherapist and life coach Stafford Weiss, who has made his fortune with self-help books promising happiness.

His wife, played by Olivia Williams, is the overbearing mother-manager of their 13-year-old son (Evan Bird), a TV star and recent drug rehab grad; their estranged daughter is played by Mia Wasikowska.

Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon also star in the movie, shooting in Toronto and Los Angeles. “Maps” is co-financed by eOne and Prospero Pictures and produced by Prospero Pictures’ Martin Katz together with SBS Prods.’

    A “twisted” and compelling thriller by the incomparable David Cronenberg.
    John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska and Robert Pattinson are among my favorites.

    More promising then his last effort in COSMOPOLIS. Cronenburgh best films for me are SCANNERS, VIDEODROME, THE FLY, DEAD RINGERS, NAKED LUNCH and EXISTENZ.

    • Hopeful says:

      Cosmopolis is an intelligent and intriguing film that was applauded at Cannes.
      It appeared on 25 top 5 Best Film 2012 lists and 69 top ten lists!
