AUGUST VIRGIN, THE
[LA VIRGEN DE AGOSTO]
On the verge of turning 33, Eva decides to spend her August in Madrid, where the heat and holiday festivities (las verbenas) drive most locals to abandon the city. From her borrowed flat, and without grand ambitions, she crosses paths with old friends and new acquaintances. Lazy summer days turn into nights of philosophical reverie. Seeking small revelations from the world around her, Eva embarks on a journey of self-discovery that unfolds on screen as a joyous, magical summer tale. Winner of the FIPRESCI prize at the 2019 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, the latest film from director Jonás Trueba (THE WISHFUL THINKERS) is a lovely rumination on new beginnings. Winner, FIPRESCI and Special Jury Prizes, 2019 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival; Official Selection, 2019 Chicago International Film Festival. DIR/SCR Jonás Trueba; SCR Itsaso Arana; PROD Javier Lafuente. Spain, 2019, color, 125 min. In English, Spanish and German with English subtitles. NOT RATED
