This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

In the summer months, the centre of Madrid is abandoned as many leave the city in droves to escape the insufferable heat. One of those left behind is Eva, a charming thirty-something, who is at a crossroads in her life. Confident and sharp, her cool persona is betrayed every now and then when past disappointments and heartbreaks resurface. But with the new season comes a world of new possibilities that are ripe for exploration. Dripping with local knowledge from a director who wears his passion for his home firmly on his sleeve, The August Virgin is heartbreakingly tender and intoxicating.
