Based on several short stories from Alice Munro’s book Runaway, this drama is directed by Spanish master Pedro Almodóvar. When recently widowed Julieta (Emma Suárez) discovers that her 18-year-old daughter Antía (Blanca Parés) has run away, she vows to put aside her grief for her late husband and do everything she can to find her daughter. The more she searches, however, the more Julieta realises she doesn’t know Antía very well at all.

It’s no surprise that ‘Julieta’ is marvellous to look at, but it possesses just as much substance as style”  (Ann Hornaday – Washington Post)
