The Frida Cinema

Orange County's Year-Round Film Festival


The ceaselessly imaginative minds of director Leos Carax (Holy Motors) and the Sparks brothers collide with their highly-anticipated musical Annette, winner of the 2021 Cannes Film Festival award for Best Director.

Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard take the lead as a boundary-pushing comedian and a soprano singer respectively, both reveling in the excess and fame of their glamorous lifestyles. That is, until they bring a daughter with an unexpected gift into the world, and the lives of all involved are thrust into an unknown path. So begins an explosively musical odyssey that you couldn’t possibly prepare yourself for.

Written by Carax and the Sparks brothers, as well as featuring brand-new original music by the legendary duo, Annette bursts onto the screen in the most unapologetic of ways.
