Sony Pictures Classics announced today they have acquired the rest of Pedro Almodóvar’s full library of films including Pepi, Luci, Bom, Labyrinth of Passion, Dark Habits, What Have I Done To Deserve This?, High Heels and Kika. Additionally, Almodóvar’s new film (his 20) Julieta, will be released in theaters on December 21. It debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
With this acquisition, SPC now has the full library of films which also includes Matador, Talk to Her, All About My Mother, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Volver, The Flower of My Secret, Live Flesh, Law of Desire, Bad Education, 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. The film stars Adriana Ugarte, Emma Suárez and Rossy de Palma.
