Natalie Portman, Jude Law, Jennifer Ehle, Christopher Abbott, Raffey Cassidy
In 1999: teen Celeste (Raffey Cassidy), a survivor of a high school shooting, performs a song composed with her sister (Stacy Martin) at a memorial for her murdered classmates and in so doing, captures the attention of a manager (Jude Law), who sets her on the path to fame. Years later, Celeste (Natalie Portman) is a Gaga-esque global superstar – a hard-nosed 21st century brand trying to breathe new life into an ailing career. Portman delivers a sensational performance in Brady Corbet’s jaggedly cynical follow-up to The Childhood of a Leader.
Featuring a magnificent score from Scott Walker and songs by Sia, plus arch narration from Willem Dafoe that sets the action at a cool remove, Vox Lux reveals him anew as one of the most dynamic contemporary American filmmakers.
"Beautifully directed by the former actor Brady Corbet...this is a dark and sometimes unnerving dissection of contemporary culture, and the violence and sensuality that drive it." ★★★★ - The Times
