Actor-turned-director Brady Corbet returns this week with a stylish and absorbing tale of a troubled pop star’s rise from the ashes to pop superstardom. Featuring a remarkable performance from Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman, 'Vox Lux' is now exclusively in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema. Discover the director's debut - a hugely ambitious study in tyranny from 2016 starring Robert Pattinson ('High Life'). Where does evil begin? Is it rooted in the experiences of childhood? Corbet offers up a sumptuous yet unconventional period drama that examines the roots of fascism. Loosely inspired by the early childhood experiences of many of the great dictators of the 20th Century and infused with the same sense of dread as 'The Others' and 'The Omen', 'The Childhood of a Leader' is an ominous portrait of emerging evil. ★★★★ "Prescott is possibly cinema’s scariest child since Damien" - Phil De Semlyen, Empire ★★★★★ "Is it an overambitious directing debut? Perhaps. But how much better than underambitious" - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times ★★★★★ "Touches you like an icy finger on the back of your neck" - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph ★★★★★ "Steely, sinister and utterly gripping" - Peter Bradshaw's Film of the Week, The Guardian
