Pedro Almodóvar reunites with Antonio Banderas (Best Actor, Cannes) and Penelope Cruz in his most personal film yet: a reflection on cinema, art, family and love.
NOMINATED: BEST FOREIGN FILM, ACADEMY AWARDS 2020

War  photographer Daniel Fisher (Hugo Weaving, Mystery Road, The Matrix trilogy) returns home to Sydney, and despite his partner's  protests, prepares for yet another hazardous overseas assignment. At the same  time, he is organising an upcoming exhibition of his work from the world's  war zones. South Sudanese refugee, Sebastian   (Andrew Luri), living happily in Australia  with his wife and young child, learns that  the exhibition will include images of a massacre in his village 15 years  earlier. He finds Daniel and begs him to exclude those photographs. An  unlikely friendship develops between the two men, but it is severely tested  when Daniel makes a shocking discovery. With powerful performances from  Weaving and Luri portraying men from very different backgrounds who bond over  their shared trauma, director Ben Lawrence’s beautifully acted debut feature  is an intelligent, morally complex and deeply moving film.
