An unusual set of circumstances brings unexpected success to a pop star.

The story begins in 1999 when teenage Celeste (Raffey Cassidy) survives a violent tragedy. After singing at a memorial service, Celeste transforms into a burgeoning pop star with the help of her songwriter sister (Stacy Martin) and talent manager (Jude Law). Celeste's meteoric rise to fame dovetails with a personal and national loss of innocence, consequently elevating the young powerhouse to a new kind of celebrity: American icon, secular deity, global superstar. By 2017, adult Celeste (Natalie Portman) is mounting a comeback after a scandalous incident almost derailed her career.

There is much to love here - wonderful naturalistic acting, especially the virtuoso performance by an almost unrecognisable Portman; the glorious soundtrack; the script, with its often savagely witty dialogue; the moments of heart-stopping drama; and the striking visual images.
