Laura, a Spanish woman living in Buenos Aires, returns to her hometown outside Madrid with her two children to attend her sister’s wedding. However, the trip is upset by unexpected events that bring secrets into the open.
User Reviews: This is a great movie in all respects. Everything is just about right. The plot is intelligent, the script doesn’t require you to skip through hoops, all the characters are believable and show their depth as the movie progresses, and ho boy, what a cast! Even the extras are good and the supporting cast is amazing, but Penélope Cruz and Xavier Bardem show in this movie that they are two of the greatest living actors.
And if you want to see how to do handheld camera work, this is it.
If I had to pick a single movie from 2018, this would be it.
