Warner Bros. Pictures has recently acquired Pedro Almodóvar’s first English-language film, “The Room Next Door,” for distribution in various international territories, including the U.K., Spain, Italy, Germany, and Latin America. This exciting film stars renowned actors such as Julianne Moore, Tilda Swinton, and John Turturro, and will also be available in other regions like the Nordics, Central and Eastern Europe (excluding Poland), and select Asia Pacific markets like Japan.

Produced by Almodóvar’s El Deseo production company and shot in locations like Madrid and New York with the support of Movistar Plus+, “The Room Next Door” features a talented cast including Alessandro Nivola, Juan Diego Botto, Raúl Arévalo, Melina Mathews, and Victoria Luengo.

The film revolves around the complex relationship between Martha, a flawed mother who works as a war reporter, and her spiteful daughter Ingrid, who is an auto-fictional novelist. As the mother and daughter navigate a serious misunderstanding, another woman becomes intertwined in their story, becoming the keeper of their pain and bitterness.

Warner Bros. Pictures mentioned in a statement that “The Room Next Door” delves into themes of war, reality, death, friendship, and sexual pleasure, showcasing the contrasting approaches of the two female protagonists. The film captures a poignant moment of awakening in a nature reserve in New England, where the characters find themselves in an unusual yet comforting situation.

Fans of Almodóvar’s distinctive storytelling style can look forward to experiencing “The Room Next Door” in theaters later this year. Prior to this project, Almodóvar directed “Strange Way of Life,” a gay western short film starring Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal, which premiered at Cannes.

Overall, the acquisition of “The Room Next Door” by Warner Bros. Pictures marks an exciting development in the world of international cinema, bringing together a talented team of actors and filmmakers to create a compelling and thought-provoking narrative.
