Julieta is a teacher of fifty-five. She writes a long letter to her daughter Antía, explaining the secrets she has kept from her over the last 30 years. But when she finishes her confession, she doesn’t know where to post it, because they have been estranged since Antía left her at the age of 18. Starring Emma Suárez and Adriana Ugarte as the younger and older Julieta, Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar (Talk to Her, All About My Mother, Volver) returns to a more austere and reflective mode. Based on short stories by Alice Munro, it’s a masterful exploration of the emotional terrain and interior lives of women.
