Julieta is a movie not to be missed this August, if you are an indie film fan, as it marks the return of Pedro Almodóvar to the director's chair.



Almodóvar has brought us movies such as Volver, Broken Embraces, and The Skin I Live In in recent years and Julieta is his first feature film since I'm So Excited back in 2013.

As well as being in the director's chair, Almodóvar has also penned the film's screenplay, which is based on the short stories Chance, Soon and Silence by Alice Munro.

The movie has already screened In Competition at the Cannes Film Festival and is one of the August movies we really are looking forward to.

There's not long to go now until the film hits the big screen and we have a brand new clip for you to take a look at:

Adriana Ugarte and Emma Suárez play the younger and older version of Julieta and are joined on the cast list by Rossy de Palma, Michelle Jenner, Inma Cuesta, and Daniel Grao.

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.
