Once Upon a Time in . . . Lisbon
One of the most critically acclaimed films of 2011 tells the story of Julie, a young French actress shooting a film in Lisbon about a 17th Century nun who is seduced by a soldier. Among the city's enigmatic and transient inhabitants, she encounters a young nun and the exchange between the two women changes Julie's destiny forever. This absorbing drama is the fourth film by the acclaimed New York-born filmmaker Eugène Green and his first to be released in the UK.
★★★★★ "Mesmeric, subtly comic and weirdly gripping, this drama set in gorgeous Lisbon is one of the year's best." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
