The 62nd Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) will open with the Australian Premiere of Pedro Almodóvar’s hilarious comedy, I’M SO EXCITED! (Los Amantes Pasajeros).
With cameo appearances by Penélope Cruz (Volver) and Antonio Banderas (The Skin I Live In), I’M SO EXCITED! features a top-notch cast of Spain, Mexico and Argentina’s finest acting talent, including previous Almodóvar collaborators Antonio de la Torre (Volver), Javier Cámara (Talk To Her, Bad Education) and Lola Dueñas (Volver, Talk To Her). I’M SO EXCITED! opens in the US in late June 2013.
I’M SO EXCITED! is the story of a Mexico-bound flight that runs into trouble when its landing gear malfunctions, and is put in a holding pattern. On board, the flamboyant cabin crew deal with the situation by drugging economy class to sleep and breaking out the tequila and mescaline in business class, where the passengers include a virgin psychic, a dominatrix, a soap star and a corrupt banker.
I’M SO EXCITED! marks the first of 18 days for MIFF, which includes well over 300 films from around the world.
