Parallel Mothers

October 118:30 pm
Post-screening Q&A with film historian Peter Evans,
author of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (BFI Film Classics)

Two women meet in a hospital, where they are about to give birth. Both are single, and both became pregnant accidentally. Their spontaneous bond will have unexpected and far-reaching consequences. The film marks the seventh collaboration between  Alomdóvar and Penélope Cruz.

“Most of all, it’s Cruz who sets the tone, with a performance that radiates warmth and is refreshingly forgiving of her character’s flaws. She has never been better. Wendy Ide, Observer

“the Spanish director finally confronts the legacy of his country’s political violence” A.O. Scott, New York Times
