Almodóvar’ Talk to HER at MDC Tower Theater

Fri Sep 20, 2019

Male nurse Benigno (Javier Cámara) becomes infatuated with a complete stranger when he watches dancer Alicia (Leonor Watling) practicing from the anonymity of his apartment. After being injured in a car accident, Alicia is brought to a nearby hospital, where Benigno serendipitously happens to be her caregiver. When wounded bullfighter Lydia (Rosario Flores) is brought into the same ward, her companion, writer Marco (Darío Grandinetti), begins to bond with Benigno.

“When it’s over, the realization of how much the movie means to you really sinks in; you can’t get it out of your heart.” –
