Dir. Carlos Vermut, Spain, 2014, digital, 127 min, Spanish w/ English subtitles

When his young daughter is diagnosed with terminal leukemia, her father, Luis becomes obsessed with fulfilling her dying wish: to own an exorbitantly expensive dress inspired by her favorite anime character, "Magical Girl Yukiko." After an encounter with the beautiful, rich, and mentally unstable Barbara, Luis decides to extort her for the money he needs. Barbara agrees to meet Luis' demands, but events soon take a shocking turn.



"Magical Girl surprises at every step, with deep and unexpected twists... For me, the film is the great Spanish cinema revelation of the century." - Pedro Almodóvar
