still in post-production (see news), Spanish actress Verónica Sánchez (Los dos lados de la cama, Camarón) is back on local screens this weekend, starring in Gustavo Ron's romantic comedy Mía Sarah. The film also stars actor turned director Daniel Guzmán, who won a Goya for the Best Short Film in 2003 for Sueños.

Here, Sánchez plays Marina, a young woman who has to take care of her teenage brother Samuel, who has suffered from agoraphobia ever since their parents died. Samuel spends his days getting rid of the psychiatrists Marina finds for him, with the connivance of his grandfather, played by one of Spain's most recognised actors, Fernando Fernán Gómez. The family’s life will change the day a new psychiatrist (Guzmán) comes up with different therapeutic methods. The doctor not only manages to change Samuel's attitude towards life but to conquer Marina's heart as well.

For Álvaro Ron, the film’s producer and the director's brother, it was an "interesting challenge to bring together the talent of three generations of actors in the same film. The cast is an amazing combination of youth and experience".

Mia Sarah was produced by Castelao Productions and Formato Producciones.

Filmax is handling theatrical distribution in the same week that three other European titles are hitting Spanish screens: Luc Besson's animated film Arthur and the Invisibles [+see also:
