One of the greatest Directors of all time is back on form.
Straight from its Cannes Competition berth, Pedro Almodóvar’s (Volver, Broken Embraces) new film is a dramatic, emotional story of a woman’s loves and regrets told in the master’s distinctive style.
Adapted from Alice Munro’s short stories, Julieta (Adriana Ugarte) is about to leave Madrid to live in Portugal when she runs into Bea (Michelle Jenner), the childhood friend of her daughter Antía. This chance meeting sets off a range of emotions in Julieta, and she begins to write a long and revealing letter to her daughter – one filled with regret, guilt and love. With a sense of mystery, an expressive score and his trademark use of vibrant colour, Almodóvar has made a film of spellbinding beauty.
