Marion Cotillard won an Oscar for playing singer Édith Piaf, but she did not actually sing in 2007’s La Vie en Rose. But she has a background in music, and she does get to use her actual singing voice in Annette, the odd new musical from French filmmaker Leos Carax (Holy Motors) that sees Cotillard playing an opera singer in a tumultuous relationship with a comedian played by Adam Driver.

Warning: spoilers ahead for Annette.
Annette is streaming now on Amazon Prime Video.
