Visionary director Leos Carax (HOLY MOTORS) makes his English-language debut with the resplendent, quirky musical ANNETTE. Featuring an original story and music by Ron & Russell Mael of the band Sparks, ANNETTE follows a journey of love, passion, and fame.

Los Angeles, today. Henry (Adam Driver) is a stand-up comedian with a fierce sense of humor who falls in love with Ann (Marion Cotillard), a world-renowned opera singer. Under the spotlight, they form a passionate and glamorous couple. With the birth of their first child, Annette, a mysterious little girl with an exceptional destiny, their lives are turned upside down. With Simon Helberg (TV’s ‘The Big Bang Theory’) and Devyn McDowell.

“If you sometimes go to the movies to feel unsettled, perplexed, and amused-not to mention get a peek at an often-shirtless and always-brooding Adam Driver- ‘Annette’ might be the weird one you’ve been waiting for.” (Slate)

“Whatever its intentions, Annette is remarkable. It’s an exhilarating collision of cinema, live concerts, stage shows, and celebrity culture, shaken up and let loose with abandon.” (Polygon)

“Over the course of 139 minutes, it never, ever takes a break from being creatively bizarre.” (Chicago Sun-Times)

“In its mix of angsty formalism and sing-along fun, ‘Annette’ may be the closest that musical cinema has come to when Brecht and Weill put a knife in Macheath’s hand for ‘The Threepenny Opera’.” (Austin Chronicle)

“‘Annette’ masters its own paradoxes.” (New York Times)
