dir. Pedro Almodovar – NYFF – Sony Pictures Classics

Marking his 20th feature film, Almodovar’s newest film is inspired by three short stories from the book “Runaway” by Nobel Prize winner Alice Munro.  Debuting at Cannes earlier this year, Sony Pictures Classics hopes that American audiences may warm to the film more than the ones who saw it back in May.  The New York crowd could give it some gas in categories like Adapted Screenplay and possibly Cinematography.  The film is also on the shortlist for Spain to be selected as their Foreign Language entry.
