Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown
£4 per student, Teachers FREE (Booking essential)
Pedro Almodovar's Women on the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988) is a fast-moving, surreal farce of obsessive love. When Ivan jilts his long-time lover Pepa, she considers suicide, laces her gazpacho soup with barbituates and rents out her flat. However, the tenants turn out to be Ivan's son and his girlfriend. Revelations pile up, weirder and weirder characters appear and meanwhile Ivan is flying off to Stockholm with yet another young girl.

The film will be introduced by Dr Tom Whittaker, Lecturer in Film and Hispanic Studies.
