Spain's legendary filmmaking auteur Pedro Almodovar (VOLVER, PARALLEL MOTHERS) returns with his own unique take on the Western genre! This special one night only event will be followed by a recorded Q&A with Almodovar himself.
To celebrate the release of Pedro Almodovar's unique take on the Western - STRANGE WAY OF LIFE - Riverside Studios have teamed with the London Spanish Film Festival to present Almodovar's 1988 classic WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN on the same night as part of a special double bill.

A man rides a horse across the desert that separates him from Bitter Creek. He comes to visit Sheriff Jake. Twenty-five years earlier, both the sheriff and Silva, the rancher who rides out to meet him, worked together as hired gunmen. Silva visits him with the excuse of reuniting with his friend from his youth, and they do indeed celebrate their meeting, but the next morning Sheriff Jake tells him that the reason for his trip is not to go down the memory lane of their old friendship.
