Julieta is set to hit the big screen here in the UK on 26th August.



Julieta marks the return of Pedro Almodóvar to the director's chair in what is his first feature film since I'm So Excited! back in 2013.

Almodóvar has brought us movies such as The Skin I Live In, Broken Embraces, and Volver in recent years and it is great to see him back. As well as being in the director's chair, Almodóvar has also penned the film's screenplay.

Julieta is a big screen adaptation of three short stories from the book Runaway by Alice Munro. The movie will see Adriana Ugarte and Emma Suárez play a younger and older version of the title character.

They are joined on the cast list by Rossy De Palma, Daniel Grao, Inma Cuesta, 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 a movie that has already opened in Spain - where it has been met well - and will receive its international debut at Cannes Film Festival; where it will also compete for this year's Palme d'Or.

Julieta is released 26th August.
