Annette is much more than the film in which Adam Driver performs cunnilingus on Marion Cotillard. It’s also a musical from Leos Carax, the genius director of Holy Motors, with music by Sparks (it’s been a banner year for siblings Ron and Russell) and the “weirdest A Star is Born riff ever,” according to Carax. It is, however, a film in which Adam Driver, a two-time Oscar contender, sings while performing cunnilingus on Oscar winner Marion Cotillard.
“I just met someone,” Driver’s stand-up comedian character says about Cotillard’s opera singer in the trailer above. “She looked at me and smiled. What I see in her is obvious. What she sees in me, that’s a little more puzzling.” She probably sees a centaur.
Here’s some more information:
