Natalie Portman shines in this new film where she takes us down a dark path into the world of music as a young woman who’s survived a horrible tragedy as a child & is put through yet another traumatic event today. She’s already getting Oscar buzz for this so I can’t wait to see how this plays out. Fans describe her character in “Vox Lux” as a combo of Lady Gaga’s style, the tumultuous life of Britney Spears & the bad attitude of Madonna. Or a merging of Black Swan & Leon. It stars Jude Law & looks like a solid piece of rock-n-roll drama to me!
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. – April
