What do Almodóvar and Carnival have in common?
They're both on this weekend, and both are vivid, dramatic affairs that have great soundtracks and particularly showcase women. Apart from that, Almodóvar's "sombre, ravishing" JULIETA offers chilled timeout with this Lexi-fave as the Kensals go crazy for conga. Almodóvar optioned 3 short stories from Canadian writer Alice Munro, thinking to make his first English language film. Subsequently relocated to Madrid, and with the main character rechristened 'Julieta', this remains as indelibly Spanish as Almodóvar himself!
