SPAIN | 129 minutes | 2019

Eva, a 30-something woman between jobs, decides to stay in Madrid in August as everyone else flees the heat. She sublets an apartment, then experiences the season through a series of encounters. Eking out the seeds of inspiration embedded in self-doubt and brimming with universal, thought-provoking discussions, Jonás Trueba’s deeply lyrical fifth film explores life’s big questions and asks whether it’s possible to reinvent yourself on familiar ground.
Q&A with the filmmaker Jonás Trueba on October 11th and 12th

"... a heartbreakingly tender, intoxicating stroll of a movie, as disarming as it is melancholic." The Film Stage
" Eva’s played by Itsaso Arana, who gives a beautiful, transcendent performance as a woman at a crossroads in life, if not quite a dead end." The Film Stage
" By way of seemingly light-hearted details and conversations, Jonás Trueba introduces the viewer to the mood, the energy and the mindset of those who remain stranded in Madrid over the summer. " Cineuropa
