Our take

Pedro Almodóvar returns to his more reflective works with Julieta, jumping across time to follow the tragic destiny of a mother, played by two different actresses. Based on the short stories of Alice Munro, this entrancing and sumptuous melodrama is imbued with guilt, grief, and irrevocable love.
