The full library of films includes PEPI, LUCI, BOM; LABYRINTH OF PASSION; DARK HABITS; WHAT HAVE I DONE TO DESERVE THIS?; MATADOR; LAW OF DESIRE; WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN; HIGH HEELS; KIKA; THE FLOWER OF MY SECRET; LIVE FLESH; ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER; TALK TO HER; BAD EDUCATION; VOLVER; BROKEN EMBRACES; THE SKIN I LIVE IN and I’M SO EXCITED!.

 

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.

    No mention of “Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down!” That would be a key omission.

“I had a knockoff Michael Kors bag that said MLK instead of MK. Jada told me that I shouldn’t have knockoff stuff. I told her that my philosophy is, Whatever the bag costs, I should be able to keep that amount of cash in the bag. If it’s a $300 purse, I have to put $300 in cash in that purse. I do not want a bag that is more expensive than the cash I have to put in it. Things are going good for me now, so I am graduating to your Fendis and your Guccis. But I better have the cash equivalent, or I’m not buying the purse. And if things start to go wrong, I’m going right back to my knockoffs. When you’re somebody like me, who’s been homeless, clothes are not that important. Clothes are not a roof over my head, food in my ­stomach, my family’s health—that’s what money is for. But fashion helps get more money. So, we ride.”

“It’s the job of the artist, to exploit connections. You see, I speak on behalf of the world of the artist without hesitation! People don’t realize that the part of the playwright is finding something for people to talk about. If you are writing about a historical episode, or two characters in ‘Hamlet,’ you have a structure for free.”
~ Tom Stoppard
