VOX LUX trailer – Natalie Portman plays a Lady Gaga-like pop star under major stress

The new Brady Corbet movie VOX LUX already made an impression on audiences at the Toronto International Film Festival – some weren’t sure quite how to take it. It follows the life of a woman who survives a violent school shooting, grows up to become a hugely popular Lady Gaga-like singer, and finds he life spiraling out of control. Narrated by Willem Dafoe, it stars Natalie Portman, Raffey Cassidy (playing the lead role as a teenager, and then the older version’s daughter as well), and Jude Law. It features new songs by SIA, and we’re guessing this is going to be a highly talked-about film. Check out the final trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

Celeste is a 13-year-old music prodigy who survives a horrific school shooting in Staten Island, N.Y., in 1999. Her talent shines through during the memorial service when she sings a song that touches the hearts of the mourners. Guided by her sister and a talent manager, the young phenom transforms into a rising pop star with a promising future. Eighteen years later, Celeste now finds herself on the comeback trail when a scandal, personal struggles and the pitfalls of fame threaten her career.
