If one dared to dream, perhaps Pedro Almodovar will have his latest film “Silencio” ready in time for the fall festival circuit. While the Cannes Film Festival has long been a second home for the filmmaker, maybe the unveiling of the first official poster means that things are further along than expected. And I didn’t realize this, but earlier this spring, Screen Daily revealed the film had a release date in Spain slated for March 18, 2016. Hmmm….
At any rate, what we know so far is that Emma Suarez and Adriana Ugarte lead the movie (and are featured on the poster), with Inma Cuesta, Rossy de Palma, Nathalie Pozo, Pilar Castro, Dario Grandinetti, Daniel Grao, Joaquin Notario, and Blanca Pares in support. The drama tracks the tumultuous life of Juliet across thirty years, from 1985 to 2015. Really, this could be about someone sitting in a room for two hours, and I’d still be excited.
We’ll see if that release date holds, or if the lure of Cannes is too good to pass up. Sony Pictures Classics will distribute the film in the U.S. Check out the poster below.
