Spain’s most celebrated director, Pedro Almodóvar, returns with a stunning, warm and seductive adult drama.

Julieta 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 sometimes, grief doesn’t bring people closer — it drives them apart.

When Antía turns 18 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 really knows about her daughter.

Julieta brings a mother’s struggle to survive uncertainty to life with classic, quality filmmaking. It’s about fate, guilt complexes, and 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.

Directed by Pedro Almodóvar (All About My Mother, Volver, Broken Embraces, The Skin I Live In, Talk To Her), Julieta will be in cinemas from Thursday 14 October.
