La Spagnola

Directed by Steve Jacobs

The eponymous ‘Spanish woman’ is Lola (Marceli) an immigrant who moved from Spain with her husband and daughter to settle in a small town in the Australian outback. But hubby’s just run off with a blonde Aussie floozy and Lola’s ready for revenge – aided by her Italian neighbours. But her teen daughter Lucia wants to take a different approach. A tale of culture clash and immigrant dreams – and nightmares, LA SPAGNOLA is a spicy mix of comedy and drama, vivid, Almod—var-esque colours and delectably sexy culinary scenes.
