Parallel Mothers (15)

Fri 28 January - Thu 3 February

Spain | 2021 | 120’ | 15 | Pedro Almodóvar
Penélope Cruz, Milena Smit, Rossy de Palma, Julieta Serrano, Israel Elejalde

Two women meet in the delivery room, both having made the same decision to go it alone as mothers. Janis is middle-aged, resolved and delighted to find herself with child; Ana is a teenager, overwhelmed and regretful. Building mutual support, they soon discover how their lives are entwined in ways they may not have imagined. Meanwhile, Janis is trying to help her village excavate a mass grave killed during Franco’s ‘White Terror’ where they suspect members of her family are buried. Birth, death, motherhood and fate: Almodóvar weaves these stories with high melodrama and moments of emotional stillness - and his muse Penélope Cruz has rarely been better.
