Synopsis

Lucía is a young waitress in Madrid, who seeks refuge on a quiet, secluded Mediterranean island after the loss of her longtime boyfriend. Amidst the fresh air, dazzling sun, and glistening deep blue water, Lucía begins to piece together the dark corners of her past relationship.

Our take

An award-winner in its homeland and a sleeper hit abroad, Sex and Lucía is a sensitive, sensuous, and refreshingly earnest drama about adult relationships—and the gap between sex and intimacy. And Paz Vega, who’d go on to work in Hollywood and with Almodóvar, becomes a star!
