‘A slick, stylish melodrama with an involving story and a cracking cast.’
A woman remembers her shady past.
About to leave Madrid for a fresh start in Portugal, Julieta’s world is rocked when she hears news of her estranged daughter Antía. Abandoning plans, and with her bemused lover in pursuit, she is consumed with reconciling her past and with reaching out to Antía. As we ash back to the sexually liberated Spain of 1989, Julieta’s life seems evermore complex and mysterious. Exuding colour and gorgeous design, Julieta casts a sensuous spell that is part Alfred Hitchcock, part Alice Munro (it’s adapted from her stories) – and 100% Pedro Almodóvar (Volver, All About My Mother).
