Watch Vox Lux
- 1 hr 50 min
The film begins in 1999 with teenage sisters Celeste Montgomery (Raffey Cassidy) and Eleanor "Ellie" Montgomery (Stacy Martin), who have survived a seismic, violent tragedy. The sisters compose and perform a song about their experience, making something lovely and cathartic out of catastrophe and launch singing careers. The sisters draw the attention of a passionate manager (Jude Law) and are rapidly catapulted into fame and fortune, with Celeste as the star and Ellie the creative anchor. By the film's second half, set in 2017, the now 31-year-old Celeste (Natalie Portman) is mother to a teenage daughter of her own (Raffey Cassidy) and struggling to navigate a career fraught with scandals when another act of terrifying violence demands her attention.
