Annette ★★★★½

Showed this to my friend without telling them what it was about and they loved it.
Even better the second time, the film's most haunting moments and undertones of climate grief stuck out at me even more now that I knew what was going to happen. Driver is one of our greatest working actors. Perfectly conveys the rage, vulnerability, and pain that is in the character, and also the abusive nature of him that is impossible to ignore. He may lay everything out on that stage as a comedian or "truth-teller", but it is still just an act, no matter how sympathetic he tries to wear himself.
One of the great films of 2021.
