Pedro Almodóvar | Spain 2016, 99 minutes | 7pm, Friday 15 July
A profound and moving study of family, guilt, and growing old
– Eugene Hernandez, Film Comment
After a chance encounter with the childhood friend of her daughter, Julieta’s memories — including her hopes and sources of guilt — start to re-emerge. Adapted from three short stories by Nobel Prize winning author, Alice Munro, the space between the stories provides the mystery that divides Julieta from the optimism of her youth and her current state of pessimism.
The latest work from master filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar (Women on Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, All About My Mother, The Skin I Live In), Julieta marks both his return to drama and the continuation of his interest in expressionistic popping colours, rippling fabrics, and attention to the lives of women.
Julieta is QFF2016’s opening night movie.
