Visionary director Leos Carax (Holy Motors) returns with an epic, hallucinatory musical on the pitfalls of love, fame and fortune starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard.

The glamorous lives of a seemingly perfect celebrity couple – a provocative stand-up comedian (Driver) and an internationally renowned opera singer (Cotillard) – take an unexpected turn when their daughter Annette is born with a mysterious gift.

An unabashedly unique and unforgettable spectacle, this Cannes Best Director prize-winner features an audaciously original story and music by Sparks, one of pop’s best-loved and most influential cult bands.
