The 15 Best Movies of 2021 According to Our Staff


2021 was certainly the year for musicals with such features as In The Heights and West Side Story gracing the screen. But if you’re looking for more of an original and just-as-lavish musical to indulge in, look no further than Annette. This surreal and sublime musical features Adam Driver playing the struggling comedian Henry. He can sense his career is at an end and even though he loves his actress wife Ann (Marion Cotillard), he’d do anything to stay famous. His path to staying in the spotlight may lie in his daughter, Annette. But how much is he willing to exploit his singing girl for the chance at remaining relevant? This wild musical comes from Leos Carax (Holy Motors) and features music by the Sparks Brothers.
