Vox Lux trailer: Natalie Portman shows fame can't always mask a troubled past
We were given a very brief glimpse of Vox Lux as it premiered at TIFF last month and a full trailer for the film has finally been released. Brady Corbet's film has received largely good reviews, although our own Alistair Ryder said in his recent LFF review that it "...tirelessly demands the audience to congratulate it for how smart it thinks it is." Portman's performance is receiving praise from all quarters, so she will probably be in the awards conversation over the next few months. Click play above to get a better look at the trailer for Vox Lux.
In the year 1999, on the eve of the 21st century, teenage sisters Celeste and Eleanor survive a seismic, violent tragedy. The sisters compose and perform a song about their experience, making something lovely and cathartic out of catastrophe - while also catapulting Celeste to stardom. By 2017, the now 31-year-old Celeste is mother to a teenage daughter of her own and struggling to navigate a career fraught with scandals when another act of terrifying violence demands her attention.
Brady Corbet (The Childhood of a Leader) writes and directs, with the supporting cast also featuring Jude Law, Jennifer Ehle and Stacey Martin.
