Mia Wasikowska stars as burn-scarred Agatha returning to the alienating womb of California after a lengthy period of enforced separation where she lands a job as personal assistant for the fading, neurotic actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore) who’s being treated by self-help media quack Dr. Stafford Weiss (John Cusack). Havana longs for the lead in a remake of a film that originally starred her mother, a tragic Hollywood legend, who haunts her embittered daughter. Meanwhile, Benjie Weiss finds his star-crossed path inevitably intertwined with that of Agatha despite the best efforts of his mother to preserve and exploit the precocious monster. Canadian auteur, David Cronenberg has crafted “a tale of terminal Tinseltown wastrels with the twisted structure of a Greek tragedy and the rictus grin of a freshly poisoned sitcom.” (Mark Kermode, Guardian)
