Pedro Almodóvar's 20th feature film weaves three Alice Munro short stories into a Hitchcockian melodrama about mothers and daughters, passion and grief and the hard changes one undergoes in a lifetime. Emma Suárez stars as Julieta, a Madrid art dealer who has been estranged from her adult daughter for 13 years. Shaken by a chance encounter with her daughter's childhood friend (Michelle Jenner), Julieta makes a deep dive into her own long-buried past. She recalls how, as a student in the 1980s, her younger self (played by Adriana Ugarte) met the man she would fall passionately in love with, Xoan (Daniel Grao), on an overnight train journey. DIR/SCR Pedro Almodóvar, from the stories "Chance," "Soon" and "Silence" by Alice Munro; PROD Agustín Almodóvar, Esther García. Spain, 2016, color, 99 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. RATED R
