This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re featuring an incredibly special conversation from the opening weekend of Annette. Director Leos Carax sat down with Film Comment’s Co-Deputy Editor Devika Girish, to discuss the making of his much-anticipated follow-up to 2012’s Holy Motors.
A years-spanning musical melodrama drenched in greens and yellows, scored by oddball art-pop duo Sparks and based on their original story, Annette marks the French director’s first English-language film, which revolves around a celebrity couple in present-day Los Angeles. Henry (Adam Driver), a towering stand-up comedian, and Ann (Marion Cotillard), a world-famous singer, are living life happily in the spotlight until their world is upended after the birth of their first child, Annette, a mysterious little girl with a peculiar talent.
