To celebrate our new Pedro Almodóvar menu we will be hosting an additional screening of one of our favourite films by the director in aqua nueva's bar while you dine. Join us on Sunday 5th November for dinner and a movie with a screening of Volver.
Meaning ‘to go back’ in Spanish, Volver, is a 2006 Spanish drama film written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar. Starring Penélope Cruz, the film revolves around an eccentric family of women from a wind-swept region south of Madrid. Cruz plays Raimunda, a working-class woman forced to go to great lengths to protect her 14-year-old daughter Paula. To top off the family crisis, her mother Irene comes back from the dead to tie up loose ends.
Cruz won Best Actress for her performance and the film won Best Screenplay at the academy awards.
