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.
