Filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar is set to return to the director's chair this summer with his new film Julieta.



Almodóvar has brought us movies such as Volver and Broken Embraces and this is his first feature since I'm So Excited back in 2013.

As well as being in the director's chair Almodóvar has penned the screenplay, which is based on a collection of short stories by Alice Munro.

The movie sees Emma Suárez and Adriana Ugarte take on the older and young version of the title character and you can see both of them in action in a great new set of images:

Suárez and Ugarte are joined on the cast list by Daniel Grao, Inma Cuesta, and Michelle Jenner.

Julieta is a teacher of fifty-five. She writes a long letter to her daughter, Antía, trying to explain all the things she has kept secret from her over the last 30 years. When she has finished her confession, she doesn't know where to post the letter.

Her daughter abandoned her when she was eighteen and Julieta hasn't heard from her in the past twelve years. She has searched everywhere, but now realises that Antía has become a total stranger to her.

Julieta is about destiny, guilt complex and the unfathomable mystery that leads some people to abandon those they love, erasing them as if they meant nothing. It is also about the pain that this brutal desertion provokes in the victim.

Julieta is released 26th August.
