Julieta

Drama Romance


 

A chance encounter with the best friend of her estranged daughter has a woman changing her plans and re-examining her past.

The onscreen crafting of "Julieta" is striking, colourful and bold. By contrast the emotional themes are darker, exploring tragedies that can ravage a family with the ensuing grief and betrayal. Mothers and daughters carry the central relationships in this story. The tale spans about thirty years, time enough for the daughters to become mothers. The action builds and develops holding interest throughout, confidently traversing the past and present, strolling rather than scampering to a satisfying conclusion. Like mother like daughter.
