Gaudi Afternoon

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Living in Barcelona, American translator Cassandra Reilly (Judy Davis) quickly discovers that appearances are very deceptive in the comedic mystery Gaudi Afternoon.

Femme fatale Frankie Stevens (Marcia Gay Harden) is another American in Barcelona. She is convinced her husband has mysteriously disappeared in the Spanish city and uses Cassandra's amateur sleuthing skills to help her find him. At first Cassandra turns the offer down but the chance to earn some easy money is too tempting.

As Cassandra attempts to help unravel Frankie's secret past, she finds herself embroiled in a web of mistaken identities, double-crossing families and a kidnapping plot.

Add to this the appearance of the sensual April (Juliette Lewis) and the elusive Ben (Lili Taylor), and Cassandra winds up in a riddle even more complex than Gaudi's haunting architecture.

Alone in a foreign city, Cassandra must solve a family's most hidden secret before she can confront her own past.
