About Vox Lux
Official Description: An unusual set of circumstances brings unexpected success to a pop star.
Vox Lux comes from writer/director Brady Corbet who might look familiar since he’s had a longer acting career than a directing one. Corbet’s been in front of the camera in Funny Games or 24 and a lot more having started his acting career when he was 11-years-old. Here, Corbet is directing only his second feature film, and it’s based on a story he wrote.
The trailer boasts an intense biopic for a faux pop star. The film had its world premiere at the 75th Venice International Film Festival and received positive reactions thus far. Natalie Portman is earning plenty of praise for her performance which shouldn’t come as a surprise since she’s at the top of her acting game.
Vox Lux features a cast that includes …
Natalie Portman as Celeste Montgomery
Raffey Cassidy as Young Celeste & Albertine
Jude Law as The Manager

What’s there not to like here? Natalie Portman as a pop star in a film that looks like it’ll have wall-to-wall, hard-hitting drama. The trailer shows off some of Portman’s vocal skills, sets up the gist of the story, and leaves viewers with an endless supply of curiosity as to what’s to come in this film.
