Directed by Erick Zonca (“The Dreamlife of Angels”) Opening May 8th, 2009

Tilda Swinton gives the performance of a lifetime as Julia, a middle-aged woman who is manipulative, unreliable, and a compulsive liar. An alcoholic, Julia gets by on nickel-and-dime jobs sandwiched between shots of vodka and one-night stands. Increasingly lonely, her alcohol-induced confusion only reinforces her sense that life has dealt her a losing hand, and her certainty that she is not to blame for the mess she has made of it.

When an opportunity to quickly make a substantial amount of money presents itself, Julia jumps at the chance and commits a desperate act. As the repercussions spiral beyond her control, she is forced to make a choice between sacrifice and redemption, and allowing her soul to sink to unredeemable depths. Directed by Erick Zonca (“The Dreamlife of Angels”), JULIA” stars Tilda Swinton, Saul Rubinek, Kate del Castillo and Aidan Gould. Michael Collins and Camille Natta adapted the screenplay. JULIA is a Studio Canal production. Rated R by the MPAA. Running Time of 138 minutes.
