What you may need to know:

1. Pedro Almodóvar began his filmmaking career as the Spanish John Waters (Pink Flamingos John Waters, as opposed to ‘I am crying, writing this’ John Waters) before maturing into an Oscar winning serious filmmaker.

2. Now it’s all come full circle.

3. Unlike nearly every other European filmmaker since the dawn of time, Almodóvar has resisted the temptation to do an American movie. Smart move.

4. Random Banderas alert @ 1’20.

5. Even more random Cruz spotting @ 1’22.

6. Broadsheet Prognosis: Camper than a fortnight at Butlins.

Release Date: May 3
