Driven by an intense need for fame and validation, members of a dysfunctional Hollywood family are chasing celebrity, one another and the relentless ghosts of their pasts.

What Netflix has been doing to the movie business, Apple is doing to the music organization, and Amazon is doing to book publishing. Amazon is actually selling more Kindle clones of books than paper copies. Facebook is a bit more than a way to suck in people's personal information, and sell it to advertisers Google Glass, plus new facial identification technology, will make that much simpler. Facebook has created over 85 million fake accounts. The hope is that the author, for example, will see their account previously set up, and decide to use this. For that reason, the author says that he will never post in Facebook.

**Not about the night stars, but the Hollywood's.** The title gives an impression of someone lost in somewhere and trying to find a way back home. I did not know what this film was about. I did not know who stars in it and when it released. But I decided to watch it at the last minute without checking out its synopsis and I ended up satisfied. Not fully pleased, but the refreshing story and its characters interested me. This is an unusual drama that takes place in a district where the Hollywood people are dominated. Our tale opens with a young woman arriving there and soon gets an opportunity to become a famous artist's personal assistant. The film also focuses others tales, so it is a multi layered story. But all of them are somewhere connected; particularly at the end. Revealing everyone's agenda behind their act is what brings the conclusion to the tale. Not neatly told story, yet different. I would say futuristic theme. I liked the performances. Robert Pattinson was not in a major role, but the other like Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore were good. Revolving around the bunch film celebrities means there's no real ones involved with the real names, just mentioned the names who were not in the film. Hard to predict the story, I was not sure until it revealed itself everything at the end. That part was a quite a shock, not I expected, but that's the real twist. Overall film was decent, slightly it missed to be a great. I feel it is worth a watch if you want something new in the story. _6.5/10_
