In case you were wondering, no, Natalie Portman is not chucking it all in for life as a punk rock chick living in squalor. She's just making a new movie, ya dingus. Natalie is filming a movie titled Vox Lux, a film in which, according to imdb, "an unusual set of circumstances brings unexpected success to a pop star." Now that Natalie's not in every movie under the sun, I think she's doing a much better job of picking projects.
See, most of us fell in love with Natalie in a number of outstanding films like Leon and Heat, and her career since then has been a mixed bag of forgettable romantic comedies and Star Wars prequels. Starting with Black Swan, however, she really seemed to be picking better projects, and her recent films like Jackie and Annihilation have proven her a much more capable actress than many of us thought.
Hopefully this flick and her upcoming movie The Death and Life of John F. Donovan continue this trend. Either way, it's nice to see her outside of awful films for a change, you know, like the Star Wars prequels. Sorry, I had to. I just had to.
