Barbie’s use of layered and bright colors is a nod to this screwball dark comedy about a soap actress named Pepa who, after getting dumped by her lover Iván, needs to track him down to deliver an important message. But her life—and her apartment—are soon invaded by a series of visitors, each with their own improbable and hilarious misfortunes.
Double Feature with THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG
“I look forward to seeing Pedro Almodovar’s ‘Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown’ on 35 mm. I enjoy dark comedies and this one delivers, led by a strong ensemble of actors, bold colors, and vivid fashion to match!” – Markelle
