Julieta

Spanish maestro Pedro Almodóvar (Talk to Her, All about My Mother, Volver) is renowned for his ability to move effortlessly from high drama to high farce, exploring the contradictions of human needs and desire through a range of styles and tones.

As one of the cinema’s greatest makers of films about women, it is only fitting that for his latest and 20th feature he has chosen to adapt the work of Nobel Prize winner Alice Munro.

Mining three stories from Munro’s exquisite collection Runaway and relocating them to Spain, Almodóvar creates a marvelously textured tale that examines the strained relationship between a mother and daughter.
