UK Trailer: Pedro Almodóvar’s Julieta [English Subs]

Pedro Almodóvar returns to serious drama three years after the high camp fun of I’m So Excited! The Spanish filmmaker has recruited Emma Suárez and Adriana Ugarte to star in mystery, Julieta, which hits cinemas in August.

Julieta is a teacher of fifty five. She writes a long letter to her daughter, Antía, trying to explain all the things she has kept secret from her over the last 30 years. When she has finished her confession, she doesn’t know where to post the letter. Her daughter abandoned her when she was eighteen and Julieta hasn’t heard from her in the past twelve years. She has searched everywhere, but now realizes that Antía has become a total stranger to her. Julieta is about destiny, guilt complex and the unfathomable mystery that leads some people to abandon those they love, erasing them as if they meant nothing. It is also about the pain that this brutal desertion provokes in the victim.

Originally titled Silencio, the project sees Almodóvar return to his favoured area of relationships between women – after a break which included Pointer Sisters loving flight attendants and vengeful plastic surgeons.
