Spanish Night 1: Parallel Mothers (15)
Director: Pedro Almodóvar
Starring: Penelope Cruz, Milena Smit, Israel Elejalde
Drama Comedy Spain 2021
2 hrs 3 mins Subtitles
Two pregnant single women, middle-aged Janis (Penélope Cruz) and teenager Ana (Milena Smit), meet in hospital and bond over their similar predicaments. As they leave with their babies, their lives are about to become entwined in increasingly complex and testing ways. Parallel Mothers is formed upon a potentially farcical premise about two women giving birth in hospital at the same time. The two women quickly become friends and decide to swap numbers. As the film unveils the two mothers start to bond as their lives begin to criss-cross in increasingly extreme and complicated ways. Almodóvar celebrates the strengths and suffering of women with his inimitable style. Parallel Mothers will not disappoint.
