Movie Info

From an award winning team comes the feature film CELESTE, a love story set in the tropical splendor of far north Queensland. It is a story of a family falling apart, coming together again and their last chance to keep a decaying world alive. Celeste (early 40's) is a renowned opera diva who retired early for the man she loved to live on a crumbling and beautiful estate in the heart of a rainforest in Far North Queensland. Ten years after the tragic death of her husband, Mateos, in a boating accident, Celeste is set to return to the stage for her final performance. Her husband's son Jack (26), still haunted by the past, arrives amidst the preparations for the performance and finds Celeste is as he remembered - beautiful, intoxicating and dangerous. Celeste wants Jack to stay at the estate, but needs him to perform one last request. A tale of desire and redemption, CELESTE is set in a bohemian world of opera and showcases a stunning and unseen part of the world.

Critic Reviews for Celeste

  • Radha Mitchell bears a strong resemblance to Cilento, but the film does Cilento no favours by evoking her memory in this confused, over-sexed and under-cooked melodrama.

  • Celeste lacks vitality; it lacks energy. There are times when one wants to grab the film and shake it to life.

  • As an old-fashioned star vehicle for Mitchell, Celeste passes muster, with few of her (human) co-stars making much impact in her slender but imposing shadow...

  • There's a lot of talent on display here but it's largely squandered on the seriously unconvincing screenplay.

  • Oh, not again. Here's yet another dull Australian film with no apparent audience in mind and no apparent interest in keeping viewers involved. The leaden direction by Ben Hackworth is so inert you spend much of the film wishing for a crocodile to turn up.

  • ...a strange cinematic experience, but its rewards (including superb supporting performances from the always excellent Nadine Garner and dazzling talent-on-the-rise, Odessa Young) are well worth searching for.
