Film Series: Julieta

2016. Spain. Dir: Pedro Almodovar. With Emma Suarez, Adriana Ugarte. 92 min.


The melodramatic auteur’s latest turn arrives with less flamboyance than usual but no less heartbreak. Chance, memory, trauma, and tragedy circle a tale spanning two timelines (and two lead actresses in the title role). Based off of Alice Munro’s short stories, Julieta explores the interiority of a woman reconciling her past and present in glorious detail.
