Sony Pictures Classics has acquired North American rights to Pedro Almodóvar’s upcoming drama “Silencio” from El Deseo.

Almodóvar is directing, with Adriana Ugarte, Emma Suárez, Daniel Grao, Dario Grandinetti, Inma Cuesta, Michelle Jenner and Rossy de Palma starring.

Suárez and Ugarte play older and younger versions of the film’s protagonist, Julieta, between the years 1985 and 2015.

Filming began last month in Spain. Sony Classics did not disclose when it will release the film.

“Silencio” is Almodóvar’s 20th feature film and the ninth movie by him handled by Sony Classics, which include “I’m So Excited,” “Bad Education,” “Volver,” “Broken Embraces,” “The Skin I Live In,” “All About My Mother,” “Talk to Her” and “The Flower of My Secret.”
