About the film:
The sumptuous, satirical Vox Lux follows young Celeste as her life changes radically following a violent incident at school. Although she suffers physically and emotionally, this is also an opportunity. The song she writes inspired by the shooting becomes a hit – the start of a successful singing career.
Vox Lux is not just about Celeste (played by both Raffey Cassidy and Natalie Portman), but also about the radical, violent changes in American society, with Columbine and 9/11 as the low points. Influenced by fear and fame, Celeste becomes a cynical superstar. Director Brady Corbet uses Willem Dafoe’s voice-over and Sia’s music to critically analyse Western culture, in which emotions and talent have been replaced by ostentation and empty success.
