The ‘Annette’ Trailer Has Adam Driver And Marion Cotillard In An Unlikely And Deeply Weird Musical

Annette is so much more than the movie where Adam Driver sings while performing cunnilingus on Marion Cotillard. It’s also a musical from Leos Carax, the brilliant director of Holy Motors, with music from Sparks (it’s been a big year for brothers Ron and Russell), and the “weirdest A Star is Born riff ever.” But yes, it’s also a movie where two-time Oscar nominee Adam Driver sings while performing cunnilingus on Oscar winner Marion Cotillard. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper would never.

“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.
