This Month’s Highlight


Sparks, a puppet baby, and Adam Driver singing during cunnilingus: Leos Carax’s latest film truly has it all. After a buzzy debut at this year’s Cannes Festival, Annette will soon make its way to Amazon Prime later this month. Starring Driver and Marion Cotillard as a comedian and an opera singer who fall in love and birth the titular little girl, Carax’s musical is bound to completely bewilder most while also probably setting the internet on fire. It technically already has!
