PEDRO ALMODÓVAR'S latest film, the critically acclaimed Julieta, and the award winning French film, The Measure Of A Man, will both be screened in the Town Hall Theatre this Sunday.

Julieta (to be screened at 6pm ), inspired by the short stories of Canadian author Alice Munro, is a female-focused story about love, loss, and regret. Julieta is set to leave Madrid for a life in Portugal with Lorenzo. However, a chance encounter with Beatriz, a childhood friend of Julieta’s estranged daughter Antia, sees Julieta cancel her plans and begin to examine her past.

In The Measure Of A Man (8pm ), Thierry (Vincent Lindon ), a principled middle-aged man, has been unemployed for over a year. After a lengthy, and often humiliating search, he finally gets a job as a supermarket security guard with the secret brief of spying on his underperforming co-workers. Thierry finds himself struggling to negotiate between his conscience and the demands of his new position. The film won Best Actor at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

Tickets are available from the Town Hall on 091 - 569777 or www.tht.ie
