Bad Education

From acclaimed director Pedro Almodovar ("Talk to Her") comes an outrageous tale of desire, revenge and murder. Filmmaker Enrique (Fele Martinez) gets a visit from an aspiring actor claiming to be his old school friend Ignacio (Gael Garcia Bernal), who has written a story about their traumatic childhood spent at Catholic school. In the story, a drag performer known as Zahara (also played by Bernal) attempts to blackmail a predatory priest by exposing their scandalous past. The tale provides the inspiration for Enrique's next film. But when the villainous priest from their school-days arrives to tell his own version of events, the truth is wilder than anything anyone could have imagined!
