Strange Way of Life Is a very intimate portrait of masculinity
A new look at Pedro Pascal and Ethan Hawke in Pedro Almodóvar’s queer Western short ‘Strange Way of Life’. The film is described as “a very intimate portrait of masculinity,” and the 30-minute queer Western short film is Almodovar’s answer to ‘Brokeback Mountain’. See the new image below.
According to Sony Pictures Classics, the “Strange Way of Life’ synopsis follows:
A man rides a horse across the desert that separates him from Bitter Creek. He comes to visit Sheriff Jake. Twenty-five years earlier, both the sheriff and Silva, the rancher who rides out to meet him, worked together as hired gunmen. Silva visits him with the excuse of reuniting with his friend from his youth, and they do indeed celebrate their meeting, but the next morning Sheriff Jake tells him that the reason for his trip is not to go down the memory lane of their old friendship.
Watch the trailer below.
‘Strange Way of Life’ stars Ethan Hawke as Sheriff Jake, Pedro Pascal as Silva, José Condessa as young Silva, Jason Fernández as young Jake, Sara Sálamo, Erenice Lohan as Clara, Pedro Casablanc, George Steane, and Manu Ros.
Directed by Pedro Almodóvar. Strange Way of Life will premiere at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival in May 2023, and the film releases on August 16, 2023, in theaters.
