Natalie Portman is one of the most talented actresses of her generation, whose highest point came with the premiere of The black swan ( Black Swan ), which earned him his first and only at least until now Academy Award. Now the actress wants to repeat the feat with Vox Lux , where she will play a pop star who reviews her turbulent life moments before offering a great concert. Those who have seen it agree that it is the best and most complex interpretation in a long time.
The Israeli will be accompanied by Jude Law , with whom he already worked – and even achieved his first nomination – in Closer . Special mention for Raffey Cassidy , who already called our attention as Athena in Tomorrowland , and who now seeks to consolidate with the youthful interpretation of the same character of Portman. Can you with this tough challenge?
The film is directed by Brady Corbet , his second film in charge after The Childhood of a Leader . And as an additional touch, highlights the presence of Sia , who composed several issues for the project, something that could get the attention of the Academy and cause some problems to a star is born ( A Star Is Born ), which leaves as the favorite by the Oscar for Best Original Song.
Vox Lux took a good step at festivals such as Venice and Toronto. Its commercial premiere in the United States is scheduled for December 7.
