Natalie Portman is Celeste, a legendary pop star, whose tragic circumstances—from the school-shooting she experienced in her teens to another ordeal with which she is accidently associated—offer an opportunity to reveal her talent to the nation and become famous. Brady Corbet, whose acclaimed debut film The Childhood of a Leader announced the arrival of a new and exciting voice, deals this time with modern America and raises questions of pop culture, social values, and the gap between representation and reality. This film is meticulously written, designed, and edited; a cinematic odyssey that features commanding performances by Natalie Portman, Raffey Cassidy, and Jude Law, pop hits (written by Sia for the film), and orchestral music composed by the late Scott Walker.
