Strange Way of Life

Pedro Almodóvar | 2023 | 82 MINS
Spain/France
We are delighted to be one of the selected cinemas in the country to bring you Pedro Almodóvar’s short film ‘Strange Way of Life’ as a one-night-only special event.

In Detail

After twenty-five years Silva (Pedro Pascal) rides a horse across the desert to visit his friend Sheriff Jake (Ethan Hawke).

They celebrate the meeting, but the next morning Jake tells him that the reason for his trip is not to go down the memory lane of their friendship. It is the first time the two men have laid eyes (and much else) on each other for 25 years. After dinner together, during which Jake abandons his teetotalism and drinks wine, the two men’s feelings for each other become too intense to resist.

The next morning, Silva asks to borrow a pair of Jake’s underpants. Almodóvar’s lovingly protracted shot of Jake’s pristine underwear drawer is an amusing fetish. This special one-night-only event will include the film (31m), alongside a pre-recorded Q&A (51m) with Pedro Almodóvar, exclusive to cinemas.
