With the awards season around the corner, a number of films have started releasing their first trailers. Rebecca Zlotowski-directed Planetarium is one of them, starring Natalie Portman and Lily-Rose Depp, the daughter of actor Johnny Depp.

Read the official synopsis released by the Toronto International Film Festival below:

"The setting is Paris in the 1930s, where two sisters, American spiritualists Laura and Kate Barlow, are winding up a world tour. Seemingly adept at communicating with the dead, the women are somewhat less experienced with the business of the living.

"Nevertheless, their astonishing exhibit of apparently supernatural powers piques the interest of powerful French film producer André Korben (Emmanuel Salinger), who retains their strange talents for his wildly ambitious new film project. Laura and Kate are soon swept up in a scheme that, fusing art and the occult, portends a dark shadow soon to be cast over all of Europe."

The plot revolves around two American sisters Laura (Portman) and Kate (Lily-Rose) who have an unusual gift – the ability to connect with the dead. They make their way through the 1930s pre-war Paris performing shows until they catch the attention of filmmaker André Korben played by Emmanuel Salinger, who offers them roles in his new movie.

Planetarium will premiere at the Venice Film Festival on 8 September and on 10 September at the Toronto Film Festival.

Aside from Planetarium, Portman will also be playing Jackie Kennedy in Pablo Larrain's Jackie which will premiere in Toronto and stars in Xavier Dolan's upcoming English-language debut, Alex Garland's sci-fi drama Annihilation.
