The Outlaw

Preview by Jack Foley

ANDRUCHA Waddington’s The Outlaw is released on DVD on October 17.

This critically-acclaimed film is the winner of 2 Goya awards 2011 for Best Costume Design and Best Original Song. It stars Alberto Ammann and Luis Tosar (from the multi-award winning Spanish prison drama Cell 211), as well as Leonor Watling and Pilar López De Ayala.

Spectacular romantic epic recounts the incredible story of the life and loves of the sexy and rebellious dramatist and incorrigible adventurer Lope de Vega y Carpio… think, Serano meets Shakespeare in Love!

It’s 16th Century Spain and gifted young playwright Lope de Vega returns to Madrid from the war filled with ambition, eager to live, to write, to make his dreams a reality.

Penniless, he is forced to work as a humble copyist. Lope falls for Elena, his boss’s ravishing daughter. Her well-connected father, who runs the most successful theatre troupe in the city, would never approve of the liaison, so the affair is kept secret.

But Elena has another secret: she’s already married. When Lope finds out, he asks her to end her marriage and make their love public. Elena refuses.

Wounded, he is tempted to play along with the one woman who can bring his vision to the stage, but his passion burns stronger than his ambition, and he publicly exposes the hypocrisy of Elena and her father.
