Two years after his superbly-crafted psychological body horror film, The Skin I Live In, Spanish maestro Pedro Almodóvar is shifting gears with I’m So Excited, a light-hearted comedy (very light, according to Almodóvar) whose narrative takes place entirely on an airplane.
Leave it to Almodóvar to find levity in disaster; the airplane in question happens to be suffering from a mid-flight technical failure, and in the face of death the crew dedicate themselves to entertaining and delighting the passengers as much as they can while they pray for resolution to their plight. If the above trailer lives up to its zany promise, then audiences should be in for a great ride – when the film arrives this summer.
