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 at times grief doesn’t bring people closer, it drives them apart. When Antía turns eighteen 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 knows of her daughter. Julieta is about the mother’s struggle to survive uncertainty. It also about fate, about guilt complexes and about 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. As one of cinema’s most visionary directors, Pedro Almodóvar (Talk to Her, The Law of Desire, All About My Mother, Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown), creates a thought provoking film concerning the issue of defining one’s life by the disappearance of a loved one. One of 2016’s must-watch films.

“Part Douglas Sirkian melodrama, part Hitchcock-lite, Julieta is a career high for Spanish maestro Pedro Almodóvar… It surprises up to its final moments.” - Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International | full review

“Told in flashback over 30 years of guilt and grief, this tender melodrama based on three Alice Munro short stories is Pedro Almodóvar’s best film in a decade.”-Mark Kermode, The Guardian | Full Review

“A slick, stylish melodrama with an involving story and a cracking cast. Star Adriana Ugarte is a real find.”-Anna Smith, Empire | Full Review

“The brooding suspense of Julieta reflects the protagonist's sense of inchoate guilt: She always suspects that she's done something wrong, but she's never quite sure what.”-Bilge Ebiri, The Village Voice | Full Review

“Bold and elegant...” - Pauline Adamek, Filmink (Australia) | Full review
