Julieta script
Julieta (2016)
Synopsis: Julieta is a 2016 Spanish film written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar based on three short stories from the book Runaway (2004) by Alice Munro. The film marks Almodóvar's 20th feature and stars Emma Suárez and Adriana Ugarte as older and younger versions of the film's protagonist, Julieta, alongside Daniel Grao, Inma Cuesta, Darío Grandinetti, Michelle Jenner and Rossy de Palma.

They turn to each other and exclaim in unison:

BEATRIZ:

Julieta!

JULIETA:

Bea!

Bea breaks away from her group, even though she’s in a

hurry. One woman in the group looks annoyed by the

meeting between Julieta and Beatriz.

From their tone it’s obvious that they haven’t seen

each other in many years and that they were good

friends in another time. They are very excited about

the encounter.

Bea is very well dressed, an outfit from the latest

collection by Dior and also a bag by Dior. She doesn’t

seem like a fashion victim, rather someone used to

dressing and accessorizing with the latest trends.

After the usual gestures and words:

BEATRIZ:

I can’t believe this, Juliet! Just

last week I met your daughter at

Lake Como!

Julieta’s eyes open wide. Surprised, she conceals the

impact of this news, she holds her breath.

JULIETA:

You met Ant.a?

BEATRIZ:

Yes! Just imagine! We were looking

at each other and it was I who

went up to her because she didn’t

recognize me!

Julieta has to make a great effort to be able to speak.

BEATRIZ:

But you look exactly the same,

Julieta. In fact, better.

Julieta manages to murmur “Thank you”.

JULIETA:

And what did she say?

BEATRIZ:

That… (She hesitates, looking

carefully for the best way to put

it) she had come down to the city

to buy things for her children…

She’s got three! Two boys and a

girl!

Julieta gives a forced smile, as if this information

weren’t a surprise for her. But the truth is she’s

shocked. More than that.

JULIETA:

Yes… I don’t know how she manages!

Do you have children?

BEATRIZ:

No… I’m not even married.

The woman in the group who is watching this meeting

with annoyance is showing signs of unease. Beatriz can

feel her eyes boring into her shoulders. The woman is

dressed with elegant, masculine sobriety, slim as an

ex-model who still maintains her aura.
