Annette Rated 15


Dir. Leos Carax. France, 2021. 2h 21m. Starring Adam Driver, Marion Cotillard, Simon Helberg, Devyn McDowell, Angèle, Natalia Lafourcade.

A seemingly perfect couple—a provocative stand-up comedian and internationally renowned opera singer—live glamorous lives in contemporary LA. However, their lives are turned upside down with the birth of their first child, a curious little girl with mysterious gifts. A spectacularly audacious rock opera by visionary director Leos Carax (Holy Motors), featuring original music by art-rock duo Sparks.

‘Beautiful, sensual, startling, operatically crackers…Both Cotillard and Driver are fearlessly committed, but Annette is the kind of film where going all-in is the only option.’ ★★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

'Annette is a forthright and declamatory and crazy spectacle, teetering over the cliff edge of its own nervous breakdown, demanding that we feel its pain, feel its pleasure’ ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
