The film was directed by Leos Carax. Adam Driver, Marion Cotillard, and Simon Helberg appear in Annette, a rock opera. Some moviegoers may be surprised to learn that the cast of Annette sung the majority of their lines live, with no audio recording or lip-syncing. Cotillard explains how Annette’s song gave her and Driver a shared sensation of dread.
When Henry and Ann’s daughter, Annette, is born, they realize how much their lives have changed since they first fell in love. The rock tragedy is told via songs composed by Ron and Russell Mael of the Sparks brothers. Cotillard discussed collaborating with Driver for the film during the Annette press junket. Cotillard told ET Canada, “I’m a great admirer of his work” (via Twitter). IMDB
