Leos Carax

An operatic cinematic feast, Annette follows Henry (Adam Driver), a provocateur comedian madly in love with Ann (Marion Coitillard), a distinguished opera singer. The lives of the two are destined to change forever, as Ann falls pregnant and a miracle talent is discovered…

Ingeniously subverting the expectations of a conventional musical, Annette is as playfully creative as it is unexpectedly dark, uncovering the fragility of ego and the cult of celebrity along its meta path.

Adam Driver delivers a an all-encompassing powerhouse central performance, while Marion Coitillard (Inception) and Simon Helberg (Florence Foster Jenkins) make for winning support.

Sparks’ musical contribution is utterly magical, meanwhile, drawing on their signature blend of whip-smart songwriting and gorgeous arrangements. A spotlight on the all-consuming nature of art and a tour-de-force cinematic experience, Annette must be seen to be believed…
