In VOX LUX, Celeste (Raffey Cassidy) is a 13-year-old music prodigy who survives a horrific 1999 school shooting in Staten Island. Her talent shines through during the memorial service when she sings a song that touches the hearts of the mourners. Guided by her sister (Stacy Martin) and a talent manager (Jude Law), the young phenom transforms into a rising pop star with a promising future. Eighteen years later, Celeste (Natalie Portman) now finds herself on the comeback trail when a scandal, personal struggles and the pitfalls of fame threaten her career. The movie also stars Willem Dafoe and Jennifer Ehle.
VOX LUX runs 110 minutes and is rated R (for language, some strong violence, and drug content).
