"BROKEN EMBRACES" (2009; R)
All Library locations will be closed on Monday, February 15 in observance of Presidents' Day.
Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar goes into Hitchcock mode for this tale of illicit love and brutal revenge. A film director accepts financing from a ruthless industrialist and falls for the man’s beautiful mistress (Penelope Cruz), who is starring in the movie.
The story is told in flashback as the director – now blind and surviving by writing screenplays – looks back on the turning point in his life and career.
