Synopsis

Thoughtful and thought-provoking, The August Virgin follows 33-year-old Eva, who, resolving to make a change in her life, has opted to remain in Madrid over the hottest month of the summer. While most of the city has fled to more moderate climes, Eva fills languid days roaming the city streets, visiting familiar haunts and old friends on her soul-searching sojourn. At once a love letter to the Spanish capital and an anthem to the last days of youth, this observational drama deftly captures the alternating angst and anticipation of young adulthood.

“A highly immersive film, with a final segment venerating womanhood – an act of faith which makes it one of the most audacious, captivating and exciting cinematic undertakings of the season.”
-Cineuropa
