"This is classic Almodóvar … all the visual elements which have made [his] work so consistently enticing are boldly represented in Julieta." – Screen Daily

Years have passed since Julieta's teenage daughter walked out on her. With no word on her child's whereabouts, she prepares to leave Spain behind for good but a chance encounter triggers an onslaught of memories and leads Julieta to turn her life upside down.

Adapted from three short stories by Nobel Prize-winner Alice Munro, Julieta is the 20th feature from Spain's iconic filmmaker, Pedro Almodóvar (I'm So Excited, MIFF 2013; Pepi, Luci, Bom and the Other Girls, MIFF 91). With its sumptuous colour schemes and twisting, suspenseful narrative, Julieta is a moving evocation of a woman's journey through grief and acceptance that easily sits among the director's finest melodramas.

"A welcome return to the female-centric storytelling that has earned Almodóvar his greatest acclaim." – Variety
