Julieta 15 rating

A ravishing study of love and loss from Pedro Almodóvar, one of contemporary cinema’s great auteurs.

Drama 2016 95 mins

Director: Pedro Almodóvar


For his 20th feature, Almodóvar delivers an exquisite study of a mother-daughter relationship tested through trying times. Adapted from three short stories by the Canadian Nobel prize-winner Alice Munro, Julieta tells of a classics teacher struggling with past secrets and the consequences of her romance with Xoan, a Galician fisherman she meets on a train in 1985. Employing a non-linear structure to bold effect, Julieta is a mesmerising film highlighting how little we might know about ourselves and those we hold most dear.
