THE RECONQUEST is a delicate romance by one of the most critically- acclaimed young directors in Spain, Jonás Trueba (Los Ilusos, Los Exiliados Románticos), son of Oscar®-winning director Fernando Trueba. An intimate, nuanced, impressively performed and beautifully nostalgic love story which should move discerning audiences worldwide.
Manuela and Olmo meet up one day for a drink. It’s been years. She hands him a letter, a letter that he had written her when they were high school sweethearts, a letter that will shake the foundations of everything they feel—or believe they feel—now that they’ve passed the thirty-year mark. Over one night on the town in Madrid, to the beat of music and cocktails, Manuela and Olmo will reunite in a future that they had promised one another fifteen years ago when they were teenagers experiencing their first love.
