In Julieta, critically acclaimed director Pedro Almodovar tells a story about a mother’s struggle to survive uncertainty and come to grips with fate. Julieta lives in Madrid with her daughter Antia. They are both in pain over the loss of Xoan, Antia’s father and Julieta’s husband. But sometimes grief doesn’t bring people closer, it drives them apart. When Antia turns eighteen, she abandons her mother without a word of explanation. Julieta is haunted by the mystery of this loss and it pervades everything in her life. Her struggle and obsession lead to self discover and surprising revelations. Evoking such earlier Almodóvar films as High Heels and All About My Mother, Julieta reflects on the magic of chance encounters and the fragility of relationships in the face of long-buried secrets.

Colorful, subtle, mature soap opera from Almodóvar.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Julieta is a Spanish-language drama (with English subtitles) by acclaimed director Pedro Almodovar, based on stories by Alice Munro. It's mainly a soap opera-like story about bad things happening to good people and other people misunderstanding things, and it should appeal to mature viewers who love soaps or foreign cinema. Characters die, and one must be identified at the morgue. There's a possible suicide by train, and a woman is hit by a car, with bruises shown. Sex scenes get pretty graphic, with naked breasts and bottoms shown and some thrusting. A man is said to have had an affair, and anatomically correct sculptures are shown. Characters smoke and drink (wine) briefly.
