Lisa Kudrow, Kate Bosworth,
Dylan McDermott, Josh Lucas, Eric Bogosian,
Tim Blake Nelson, Christina Applegate,
Natasha Gregson Wagner,
Janeane Garafolo, Franky G. and
Carrie Fisher, WONDERLAND explores,
in Rashomon-like fashion the multiple
murders that took place high atop
Wonderland Avenue in LA's Laurel Canyon
in the summer of 1981. At first the victims
were thought to be mere drug dealers and
party hounds, but the case became elevated
to a classic LA noir when they were discovered to be
connected to infamous porn star John C. "Johnny Wadd" Holmes. By the time our story begins, Holmes had fallen from perhaps the biggest and most famous star in the hardcore industry to a state of financial and pharmaceutical ruin. As played by Val Kilmer, Holmes is devoted to his teenage girlfriend Dawn (Bosworth) while still married to his wife Sharon (Kudrow) and the three form a most unique love triangle. Holmes befriends local drug dealers Ron (Lucas) and Susan Launius (Applegate) but soon gets himself neck deep into debt and desperation. To save himself from the wrath of notorious gangster Eddie Nash (Bogosian) did he set up his best friends for murder? It all depends on whose story you believe. WONDERLAND is directed by James Cox from a screenplay by James Cox & Captain Mauzner and Todd Samovitz & D. Loriston Scott.
