HE’S Spain’s king of quirky cinema, but Pedro Almodovar’s new film is a less outlandish affair than normal.

The director’s Julieta makes its premiere in Spain on April 8 before taking its UK bow on August 26.

The tale of a 55-year-old teacher whose daughter has abandoned her is Almodovar’s first offering since 2013’s I’m So Excited.

“It’s a film about women who are imperfect but sympathetic, like you, like all of us,” said the Oscar-winning director.

“I have tried to be less rhetorical because I decided that was the way to tell this story. It’s not a melodrama, it’s a dry drama.”
