  The Menno Meyjes directed drama stars Adrien Brody as Spanish bullfighter Manolete, in a film that covers his late life love affair with actress Lupe Sino (Penélope Cruz) before he was gored to death in the bull ring. Sino’s communist politics turned their affair into a scandal in the early 1940s, especially after discovering her previous marriage to a PCE member.[3] The film begins with Manolete’s last day in Linares.
