I'm So Excited by Pedro Almodóvar premiers at the Coral Gables Cinema

From July 12 through 17, 2013.

Oscar-winning director Pedro Almodóvar (Talk To Her, The Skin I Live In) returns to the Gables Cinema with the South Florida First Run Engagement of his new comedy hit I’m So Excited (Los amantes pasejeros), opening Friday, July 12 in 2K Digital Cinema Projection. Starring a who’s who of Spanish-language cinema’s most well known actors – including Antonio Banderas, Penélope Cruz, Javier Cámara, Cecilia Roth and Paz Vega, among others – the film tells the story of a Madrid to Mexico airplane flight that is facing complete mechanical failure. Harking back to Almodóvar’s earlier period of zany and off-beat comedies, I’m So Excited is the director at his most crowd-pleasingly playful.

In I’m So Excited the flight attendants and crew confront the possibility of a fatal plane crash by trying to forget their own personal problems, and instead devote themselves, body (literally), and soul, to their passengers. The cast of characters includes three campy lip-synching flight attendants, a straight-laced captain, one dashing co-pilot, a clairvoyant virgin, a drug-smuggling groom and a sharp-tongued madame. Life in the clouds is as complicated as it is on the ground for the diverse, crazy, sex and death-obsessed typically Almodóvar group of people thrown together on the endangered plane. Variety raves that I’m So Excited is, “A hugely entertaining, feel-good celebration.”
