Parallel Mothers

Parallel Mothers

Two women, Janis and Ana, coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn't regret it and she is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatized. Janis tries to encourage her while they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between the two, which by chance develops and complicates, and changes their lives in a decisive way. Spanish with subtitles.

"Penelope Cruz is astonishing." -Time

"Oscar-caliber screenwriting and direction and easily one of Almodóvar's best films." - National Newspaper Publishers Association

"A film that's bent by hardship and pierced by tragedy but it finally bows out with a message of hope." - Guardian

"A ravishingly crafted work that again illustrates with ineffable beauty that no one uses the expressive power of color and design quite like Almodóvar." - Hollywood Reporter
