Hero and Leander

Last night, we watched  Julieta, a Pedro Almodóvar tragedy. The film was quintessential Almodovar. By that I mean it was melodramatic, shot with vivid colors and beautiful Spaniard actors. The protagonist, played in her 20s by Adriana Ugarte and in middle age by Emma Suárez, was clearly modeled upon Shakespeare’s Juliet, and Hero, from Greek mythology. I do recommend this film.
