After earning mixed reviews for last effort “I’m So Excited” (Los Amantes Pasajeros), which was a departure from emotional dramas and into more the satirical territory, Spanish master Pedro Almodovar seems to be back to dealing with family secrets between mothers and daughters in his upcoming feature “Julieta” (formerly known as “Silencio”).
The film, which will open in Spanish cinemas on April 8, tells the story of Julieta, a woman who is losing grip on her life and whose best years with her daughter seem to be behind her. “Julieta” stars Emma Suárez, Adriana Ugarte, Darío Grandinetti, Rossy de Palma, and Michelle Jenner.
While there is no U.S. release day yet, Sony Pictures Classics has acquired rights to distribute the film stateside as it has been the case with Almodovar last eight films.
Take a look at the new Spanish trailer below (which does have English-subtitles).
