Sony Classics Sets December Release for Pedro Almodovar’s ‘Julieta’

Sony Pictures Classics has set a Dec. 21 release in the U.S. for Pedro Almodovar’s “Julieta,” starring Adriana Ugarte, Emma Suárez and Rossy de Palma.

The film, which debuted in Spain in April and screened at Cannes in May, was acquired in June, 2015, by Sony Classics when its title was “Silencio.” Based on the stories of author Alice Munro, “Julieta” is about a mother’s struggle to survive uncertainty.

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

Peter Debruge wrote in his review for Variety: “Almodovar has constructed an extremely unconventional mystery, one in which there is no crime or culprit. Rather, his leading lady is herself a riddle.”

Sony Classics also announced Monday that it had acquired the rest of Almodóvar’s full library of films including “Pepi, Luci, Bom,” “Labyrinth of Passion,” “Dark Habits,” “What Have I Done to Deserve This,” “High Heels” and “Kika.”
