In his bestselling novels, author Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho, Less Than Zero) established himself as a modern chronicler of decadence, revealing dark shadows behind lives of wealth and glamour. In this new film, Ellis co-writes a script inspired by his own stories. Academy Award winners Billy Bob Thornton (Best Adapted Screenplay, Sling Blade, 1997) and Kim Basinger (Best Actress in a Supporting Role, L.A. Confidential, 1998), Academy Award nominees Winona Ryder (Best Actress in a Leading Role, Little Women, 1995) and Mickey Rourke (Best Actor in a Leading Role, The Wrestler, 2009) star in an interweaving tale in the tradition of Boogie Nights, it unfolds in Los Angeles: a city ruled by addictions of every type - from sex, to drugs, to power - where youth is wasted, where love is fleeting, where every night is a headlong rush to the next orgy of sensation. Sooner or later, the party has to end...and the hangover is bound to be a killer. Also starring Chris Isaak, Brad Renfro in his final performance and hot up-and-comers Amber Heard (Pineapple Express) and Austin Nichols (TV's One Tree Hill).
