Certain films capture your mind and attention so effortlessly that you don’t want to look anywhere else, even for a second, and at the same time, you try to grasp the plot of the film but all in vain. The latest flick by the visionary director Leos Carax, Annette, is one of those films. Starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard, Annette is a musical drama that narrates the story of a celebrity couple whose life goes upside down after the birth of their gifted child, Annette. The film received positive reviews and premiered as the opening film at Cannes Film Festival, 2021.
Annette narrates a provocative standup comedian Henry (Driver) and world-famous soprano Ann (Cotillard). The two fall in love and soon become one of the most celebrity couples in the town. The way they handle their relationship while being in the spotlight and how their lives change after Annette’s birth forms the movie’s synopsis. Thanks to the pandemic, the movie-watching experience in theaters is in shambles. Annette dared to release it in theaters, but only time will tell if it was a brave move from the makers or a foolish one.
In any case, the theaters will hold rights to the movie for a few weeks before the film will premiere on online streaming platforms. If you enjoy indie dramas or stylistically unique movies, Annette should have a space in your watchlist, and here’s where you can stream it online:
Netflix’s wide range of entertaining movies and shows does not include Annette.
People who want to watch Annette but are unwilling to knock on the doors of the theaters can watch this musical drama on Amazon Prime from August 20, 2021.
Unfortunately, Annette will not be a part of HBO Max’s entertainment catalog.
For people who have an Amazon Prime Video, the subscription will get an option to watch Annette on Disney+ without any additional payment. As of now, Annette is currently unavailable on all streaming platforms. So people who eagerly want to watch Annette can visit their nearest theatres or need to hold their horses for a couple of days more.
Annette is being appreciated for its writing and screenplay, the emotional quotient being the film’s highlight. After receiving such a phenomenal response, fans expected a sequel to this musical drama. However, the makers left the fans disappointed as they are currently not planning on turning the film into a franchise. But will they change their minds in the future? Only time will tell. Stay tuned for more updates.
