Watching Julieta reminded me what an unbelievable storyteller Pedro Almodovar is. His films have the best roles for women of all ages, and this is no exception. The story of a middle-aged woman reliving her past to understand why her daughter disappeared from her life, it has humour, pathos, intrigue and some ravishing costumes courtesy of Dior.
I can’t lie though, my favourite moments were with the inimitable Rossy de Palma as you’ve never seen her before. As a dour-faced, curly-wigged frump, but owing it all the way! Do honour this with a proper cinema visit, it deserves the full popcorn-and-soda treatment.
