Julieta, written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar, is based on three short stories from the book Runaway by Canadian Nobel Prize Winner, Alice Munro. The film marks Almodóvar's twentieth feature and it features a superb cast starring Emma Suárez and Adriana Ugarte as older and younger versions of the film's protagonist, Julieta, alongside Darío Grandinetti, Michelle Jenner, and Rossy de Palma. It made its international debut at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, where it was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or. It is considered one of the director's most accomplished and mature films in his extensive repertoire of works that explore the paradoxical nature of contemporary elective affinities. This is Almodóvar again at his best: provocative and unconventional in his challenge to social and cultural stereotypes and comfortable orthodoxies. The film will be presented in the O.V. in Spanish with English subtitles.
