Jackie could be the one Marie's always searched for. When a scripted kiss seems a bit more ... real, Marie wonders if Jackie feels it, too. Then a handsome young man drops Jackie off one morning, and Marie’s heart sinks. Did Marie read more into the kiss than she should have? Is Jackie straight? To complicate matters, Ashley, an old flame who never wanted to settle down, is also in the cast. Ashley apologizes for how she treated Marie four years ago, and now wants to get together again. With opening night approaching, Marie’s torn between two beautiful women, and the decision she makes could have an impact on her blossoming career.

A Spanish Labyrinth is a much needed, clear, and comprehensive introduction to the films of Almodóvar, investigating the cultural and national contexts for his work, issues of gender, sexuality, stars, genre, visual style, music, and much more.

Post Franco Postmodern

Author: Kathleen M. Vernon
Publisher: Praeger Pub Text
ISBN: UOM:39076001674568
Release Date: 1995-01
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

The films of Pedro Almodovar have demonstrated great crossover appeal in their ability to attract both mainstream and marginal audiences and to command critical as well as commercial success. The contributors to this anthology of critical essays seek, through close readings of the director's 10 feature films, to analyze the multiple contexts of Almodovar's phenomenal international success. This volume offers a corrective to the glib approaches that have dominated previous discussions of Almodovar's films, which have treated them, on the one hand, as simply the latest contribution to the travel poster image of passionate, "romantic Spain," or, on the other, as historical joyrides through the global pop culture scene. As the first comprehensive study of Almodovar's cinema to be published in North America, the book is also noteworthy for the range of critical and theoretical methodologies that the contributors bring to the study of his works. Drawing upon disciplines that run from psychoanalysis, feminism, queer theory, film and media studies, and cultural theory to the empirical study of audience response, the authors nevertheless share a concern to illuminate the specifically Spanish context of the director's films. While this volume serves the important function of introducing American audiences to post-Franco Spanish culture, it also pursues the complementary goal of projecting contemporary Spain into the critical debate on the forms and functioning of postmodern culture and society.
