Vox Lux (15)
Cast. Natalie Portman, Jude Law, Stacy Martin, Jennifer Ehle, Willem Dafoe (voice).
Brady Corbet follows up his directorial debut Childhood of a Leader with this ferociously entertaining and provocative portrait of 21st Century America seen through the prism of a pop star phenomenon. Teenage Celeste, a survivor of an adolescent tragedy, attracts the attention of a manager after performing a song, and she's catapulted into fame. Years later, the now adult (and deeply cynical) Celeste is a Gaga-esque superstar, struggling to navigate a career fraught with scandals. With arch narration from Willem Dafoe, Vox Lux is a powerful commentary on celebrity culture.
