Natalie Portman is a Pop Star in This Teaser Trailer For VOX LUX
The first teaser trailer has been released for Natalie Portman's upcoming film Vox Lux. The teaser may not show us much, but this has the makings of a film that tells a fantastic and fascinating story.
The film follows the rise of Celeste (Portman) from the ashes of a major national tragedy to pop superstardom. The film spans 18 years and traces important cultural moments through her eyes, starting in 1999 and concluding in 2017. Here's a more details story summary:
The film begins in 1999 with teenage sisters Celeste (Raffey Cassidy) and Eleanor (Stacy Martin), who have survived a seismic, violent tragedy. The sisters compose and perform a song at about their experience, making something lovely and cathartic out of catastrophe — while also launching a career.
The sisters draw the attention of a passionate manager (Jude Law) and are rapidly catapulted into fame and fortune, with Celeste as the star and Eleanor the creative anchor. By the film's second half, set in 2017, the now 31-year-old Celeste (Portman) is mother to a teenage daughter of her own (Cassidy) and struggling to navigate a career fraught with scandals when another act of terrifying violence demands her attention.
This is sure to be an incredible role for Portman to take on and I'm curious to see how this story of Celeste will unfold.
The movie was directed by Brady Corbet (Childhood of a Leader) and the music was also composed by Sia. Check out the teaser trailer below...
