Almodóvar's 'The Room Next Door' already has a release date

'The Room Next Door', Pedro Almodóvar's first film shot entirely in English, will hit Spanish cinemas on October 18.

The film stars Tilda Swinton and Julianne Moore alongside John Turturro. After the short films “The Human Voice”, also starring Tilda Swinton, and “Strange Way of Life”, starring Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal, Almodóvar has filmed his first film completely in English.

The story of “The Room Next Door” is that of a very imperfect mother and a spiteful daughter separated by a great misunderstanding. Between them, another woman, Ingrid (Julianne Moore), a friend of her mother, is the repository of both of their pain and bitterness. Martha, the mother (played by Tilda Swinton), is a war reporter and Ingrid is an autofiction novelist.

The film talks about the limitless cruelty of wars, about the very different ways in which the two writers approach and write about reality, death, friendship and sexual pleasure as the best allies to fight against horror. . And it also talks about the sweet awakening to the chirping of birds, in a house built in the middle of a nature reserve in New England, where the two friends live an extreme and strangely sweet situation.

Shot between Madrid and New York, the film also features the participation of Alessandro Nivola, Juan Diego Botto, Raúl Arévalo, Melina Mathews and Victoria Luengo, among others, and will arrive in theaters from Warner Bros. Pictures in Spain, Italy, United Kingdom, Germany, Central Europe and Eastern Europe (except Poland), Nordic Countries and Latin America, among others.
