If you are looking for a bit of character drama on the big screen this weekend, make sure that you don't miss Julieta, which has been released today.



Pedro Almodóvar's family drama is a movie that has played well on the festival circuit this year and is one of the August indie films that I have been looking forward to the most.

The movie is based on three short stories from the book Runaway by Alice Munro and sees Almodóvar back in the director's chair for the first time since I'm So Excited! three years ago.

To whet your appetite for the film, we have a terrific new clip for you to take a look at:

Almodóvar has brought us movies such as Volver, The Skin I Live In and Broken Embraces in recent years and it is always exciting when one of his movies is on the horizon.

As well as being in the director's chair, Almodóvar has shown off his writing skills by adapted the short stories into a feature film screenplay.

Emma Suárez, Adriana Ugarte, Daniel Grao, Inma Cuesta, and Michelle Jenner have come together to make up the cast list.

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 out now.
