Synopsis

Following the award-winning Pain and Glory, critically acclaimed director Pedro Almodóvar returns with PARALLEL MOTHERS, a Spanish drama featuring Penélope Cruz, winner of Best Actress at the 78th Venice Film festival for her performance, and Milena Smit – a Goya Awards nominated actress.
PARALLEL MOTHERS tells the story of two women, both single mothers, who give birth in a shared maternity ward in Madrid. Both women harbor fears and unresolved emotions over failed relationships, seeking support in one another and wandering the hospital halls in mutual apprehension for what the future holds.

The film elegantly balances drama and comedy, moving through the tale of two unlikely friends with substance and sincerity. Almodóvar explores the experience of Motherhood through two women from vastly different walks of life, but who have both fallen pregnant by accident. Cruz’s performance is surefooted and complex, while Smit is emotionally raw and energised. Together they create a film bent by hardship and pierced by tragedy, which eventually winds itself into something beautiful, hope.
