SOFIA AND THE STUBBORN MAN [Sofía y el Terco]
Pedro Almodóvar muse Carmen Maura (WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN) shines as Sofía, a silently suffering yet dutiful wife, going through the motions in her tiny Andean village. She's always dreamt of the sea, but her cranky husband unfailingly comes up with an excuse to keep them from going. Slowly gathering up the courage, Sofía packs a bag, heads for the highway and gets on a bus towards the coast. Embarking on a life-changing adventure, Sofía encounters oddballs and outcasts who help her on her way. A joyful, quirky coming-of-(old)-age film.
