A TWISTY TALE OF MOTHERHOOD, IDENTITY, AND FAMILY AMID A HISTORICAL RECKONING
Expectant mothers Janis (Penélope Cruz, PAIN AND GLORY) and Ana (Milena Smit, CROSS THE LINE) coincide in a hospital room where they are soon to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident, and while middle-aged Janis is elated to have a daughter on the way, adolescent Ana is scared, repentant, and traumatized. Much like motherhood, their brief moments together create a bond that grows, complicates, and impacts their lives forever.

Writer/Director/Producer Pedro Almodóvar (THE SKIN I LIVE IN) follows up his Palm d'Or nominated film PAIN AND GLORY in this stunning study on motherhood, family, and finding your place in the world. All of this is interconnected with historical themes and musings on the impact of the Spanish Civil War, which hangs heavy over the characters even decades later. Filled with heart-warming highs and devastating lows, PARALLEL MOTHERS is a triumphant film that reminds us that sometimes all we have to do is tell ourselves that it will all work out.
New release, $7.50.
