Stars: Rachel Weisz, Max Minghella, Oscar Isaac
Director: Alejandro Amenábar
The film is based on the life story of one of the most famous and beautiful women in the Roman Empire, the Greek philosopher Hypatia. Throughout the film, the director shows us the tragedy and passion of her love, the discoveries of the past years (the action takes place in the fifth century AD), and the stupidity and hatred of people and the church towards scientists. And no matter how exciting the plot is (and it will not leave anyone bored during the 126 minutes of the film), the finale is still tragic. More information on Agora can be found here.
Stars: Penélope Cruz, Carmen Maura, Lola Duenas
Director: Pedro Almodovar
This is one of the best works by Pedro Almodovar, which is interesting to watch and view from a female perspective. In the center of the plot is the story of Raimunda, who is forced to think more about others than about herself. She works almost all day, lives with a dysfunctional man, brings up a teenage daughter, takes care of her sister and also keeps a secret. When her life becomes extremely difficult her mother comes to the rescue. Only she can comfort and understand her daughter. More information on Volver can be found here.
Stars: Emma Suárez, Adriana Ugarte, Daniel Grao

Another film by Pedro Almodovar is about a strong woman and all-consuming maternal love. This time the director showed the story of a woman who suddenly loses her husband and is left alone with her daughter. At first, the heroine falls into a deep depression and then tries to become happy, despite the trials of fate. You can watch the official trailer for Julieta here.
