Julieta

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

From the great Spanish director Pedro Almodovar and the great Canadian writer Alice Munro comes JULIETA, a truly terrific new film. Julieta lives in Madrid with her daughter Antía. They both suffer in silence over the loss of Xoan, Antía’s father and Julieta’s husband. But at times grief doesn’t bring people closer; it drives them apart. When Antía turns 18, she abandons her mother, without a word of explanation. Julieta looks for her in every possible way, but all she discovers is how little she knows of her daughter—and perhaps of herself. “Almodóvar—whose penchant for narrative complexity grows ever deeper—latches on to the idea of personal history as a puzzle that refuses to be solved”—Anthony Lane, The New Yorker. In Spanish with English subtitles. R. 99 Min.
