But even more so, they're artful meditations on heartbreak, and in her brief remarks onstage to introduce the film, Musgraves affirmed that assessment.

"I'm really thankful," she said, "for the opportunity to transform trauma into beauty."

Kacey Musgraves breaks down the breakdown of her marriage on “ star - crossed ,” her follow- up to 2018's Grammy winning album of the year “Golden Hour.” Musgraves delivers the story in roughly three acts of tightly woven pop/country songs: the optimism of falling in love, the sadness of drifting apart and everything that comes from the realization there is no going back. You don’t have to have suffered through a divorce to connect with the feelings Musgraves expresses about seeking and holding onto love, loss, anger and hope for a better future.

Indeed, Musgraves and director Bardia Zeinali (who's worked with Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa and Shawn Mendes, among others) have fashioned a phantasmagoria in three acts, loosely depicting the before, during and after of a marriage. Ten of the album's dreamy, vibey songs are prominently featured throughout, along with snippets of three more.

The film is populated with a carnival troupe's worth of colorful characters; what's conspicuously missing, however, is any depiction of a husband. And yet all of Star-Crossed revolves around that absence. Musgraves portrays a series of maritally related roles — groomless bride, marauding bridal-shop vandal, Stepford wife-in-training — before experiencing a head-on car crash that leaves her literally shattered. Once an ambulance team retrieves her body parts, she's reassembled, and her broken heart is revived.

The film's final third is a wild pastiche of past, present and future, featuring Musgraves in a foot race with a horse, at a church dance party, and undergoing a ceremonial costume change — all hastened along with ample assistance from an unspecified pharmaceutical.

The singer brings it to a close on a stirring, bittersweet note, performing "Gracias a la Vida" ("Thanks to Life"), a Latin American standard written by mid-20th-century Chilean folk artist Violeta Parra. (Notably, outside of a hidden track on Pageant Material, this is the first time that Musgraves has included a song on a studio album that she didn't co-write.)

Obviously, so much is happening on-screen that everyone will have endless fun watching and rewatching the film, interpreting and conjecturing what it all means.

Musgraves also drops Easter egg-ish film references with the Lancaster, California, chapel that was featured in Kill Bill and a snippet from Olivia Hussey's death scene in the 1968 version of Romeo and Juliet.
