‘Strange Way of Life’ Director Pedro Almodóvar Says No Nudity In The Gay Western Film

Strange Way of Life

The director of the gay western ’Strange Way of Life’ Pedro Almodóvar opened up about the nudity between Pedro Pascal and Ethan Hawke for the film, or the lack thereof.

Washington Post’s Jada Yuan posted that Almodóvar introduced the screening of ‘Strange Way of Life’ at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), saying “There are a lot of scenes with Pedro Pascal and Ethan Hawke. I am sorry to say that they are not naked… You are not going to see them naked, but you are going to see two wonderful [performances].”

While there will not be any frontal nudity to fans’ dismay, Pascal and Hawke do have intimate scenes in ‘Strange Way of Life’ as previously shared by Pascal who said the film will be “full of these moments that are erotic without being explicit sexually or having to do with any kind of physical nakedness.”

‘Strange Way of Life’ follows Silva (Pascal) and Sheriff Jake (Hawke) as they navigate their complicated past and uncertain future. The official synopsis says “A man rides a horse across the desert that separates him from Bitter Creek. He comes to visit Sheriff Jake. Twenty-five years earlier, both the sheriff and Silva, the rancher who rides out to meet him, worked together as hired gunmen. Silva visits him with the excuse of reuniting with his friend from his youth, and they do indeed celebrate their meeting, but the next morning Sheriff Jake tells him that the reason for his trip is not to go down the memory lane of their old friendship…”

The short film premiered at the 76th Cannes Film Festival on May 17. It was screened at the TIFF on September 9. It will be in UK cinemas for one night only on September 25. After the circuit of film festivals, Strange Way of Life will have a theatrical release in New York and Los Angeles on October 4 before expanding to a nationwide release in the US on October 6.
