JULIETA, based on short stories by Nobel laureate
Alice Munro, is about a mother’s struggle to survive uncertainty. It is
also about fate, guilt complexes and that unfathomable mystery that
leads us to abandon the people we love, erasing them from our lives as
if they had never meant anything, as if they had never existed. JULIETA
has received acclaim for its rich storytelling and supreme design as
well as great performances led by Adriana Ugarte, Emma Suárez and Rossy
de Palma. It debuted at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
