"5 stars! Almodovar's best film in a decade. Sumptuous and heartbreaking." -Mark Kermode, The Guardian
"Few things in this world are as dependable as chocalate, taxes or the sexy films of Pedro Almodóvar. The spanish auteur returns to his roots." -Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
Almodóvar adapts three female-centric short stories by author Alice Munro in this piercing and rich drama.
Julieta (Emma Suarez) 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 eighteen 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.
JULIETA is about the mother's struggle to survive uncertainty. It also about fate, about guilt complexes and about that unfathomable mystery that leads us to abandon the people we love, erasing them from our lives as if they had never meant anything, as if they had never existed.
