Natalie Portman is Celeste in the Vox Lux Trailer

Opening in limited theaters on December 7

NEON has released the first full trailer for Vox Lux, opening in limited theaters on December 7, 2018. The film was written and directed by Brady Corbet (The Childhood of a Leader).

Vox Lux, A 20th Century Portrait, begins in 1999 when teenage Celeste (Raffey Cassidy) survives a violent tragedy. After singing at a memorial service, Celeste transforms into a burgeoning pop star with the help of her songwriter sister (Stacy Martin) and talent manager (Jude Law). Celeste’s meteoric rise to fame dovetails with a personal and national loss of innocence, consequently elevating the young powerhouse to a new kind of celebrity: American icon, secular deity, global superstar.

By 2017, adult Celeste (Natalie Portman) is mounting a comeback after a scandalous incident almost derailed her career. Touring in support of her sixth album, a compendium of sci-fi anthems entitled “Vox Lux,” the indomitable, foul-mouthed pop savior must overcome her personal and familial struggles to navigate motherhood, madness and monolithic fame.

Featuring original songs by Sia, an original score by Scott Walker and a transcendent performance by Natalie Portman, Vox Lux personifies the cult of celebrity and pummels the zeitgeist. It’s an original story about the forces that shape us, as individuals and nations.
