“Tonight, we’re gonna bring it back to where it all began,” Portman says, signalling a shift in the focus from her current life to the day she was caught on camera singing an obituary for a classmate. The trailer shuttles between the past and the present, juxtaposing the carefree, young Celeste Montgomery with the now pop star clad in a shiny costume performing in front of a cheering crowd.

Discussing her role as Celeste, in the film, Portman said in an interview that her character is both a "victim" and a "leader" of her times.

According to director Brady Corbet's official statement Vox Lux is “a historical melodrama set in America between 1999 and 2017. Its protagonist is a pop star called Celeste and it chronicles, via her gaze, key events and cultural patterns that have so far defined the early 21st century.”

Vox Lux also stars Jude Law, Jennifer Ehle, Stacy Martin and Raffey Cassid. Sia and Scott Walker have scored the music for the film.
