From an award-winning team comes the feature film CELESTE, a love story set in the tropical splendour 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 (Radha Mitchell) 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.
