Rosa is a middle-aged sex worker in Madrid whose neighbor, a Russian sex worker, overdoses, forcing the woman’s young daughter to seek refuge in Rosa’s apartment.

THE BRIDE
LA NOVIA
2015, Outsider Pictures, 96 min, Dir: Paula Ortiz

Federico Garcia Lorca’s classic play Blood Wedding serves as the basis for this engrossing drama. Feroz winner Inma Cuesta plays the title character, whose upcoming marriage is derailed by the arrival of an old flame (Álex García). Shot in Turkey by cinematographer Migue Amoedo, the film’s occasionally fantastical imagery elevates a tragic love triangle into the realm of poetry. With Luisa Gavasa. In Spanish with English subtitles.
