Von Lux

Natalie Portman stars in Vox Lux, about an indomitable, foul-mouthed pop savior who must overcome her personal and familial struggles to navigate motherhood, madness and monolithic fame.

Two films open Friday at Art House Cinema and Pub, 109 N. 30th St., including VOX LUX (R), a 21st century portrait that 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. Touring in support of her sixth album, a compendium of sci-fi anthems entitled, "Vox Lux," the indomitable, foul-mouthed pop savior must overcome her personal and familial struggles to navigate motherhood, madness and monolithic fame.

Showtimes: Fri., Sat., Wed., Thurs., 3:30 p.m., 8:30 p.m.; Sun. 3:30 p.m.

ANGEL (R) is set in Buenos Aires, 1971. Carlitos is a seventeen-year-old youth. As a young boy, he coveted other people's things, but it wasn't until his early adolescence that his true calling — to be a thief — manifested itself. When he meets Ramon at his new school, Carlitos is immediately drawn to him. Together they will embark on a journey of discoveries, love and crime.

Showtimes: Fri., Wed., Thurs 6 p.m.; Sat. 1 p.m., 6 p.m.; Sun. 1 p.m.
