Trailer Watch: Los Abrazos Rotos
That Pedro Almodóvar--what a tease. There's a reason why Penélope Cruz thanked him in her speech, it was Almodóvar that made her relevant, first in Todo sobre mi madre, and then once again in Volver. Will Los Abrazos Rotos (or Broken Embraces, as most US audiences will see it as) garner Penélope another Oscar nomination in 2009? I'm not totally sure about it. With her recent win, and another high-profile Fall role in the Rob Marshall musical Nine, the people maybe a little Penélope-ed out. Oscars or not, this film looks awesome; as most Almodóvar movies seem do.
