“Melodramatic genius….Almodóvar leaves us with an overwhelming sense that the pursuit of justice, by right, is women’s work.” – The New Yorker
“Everything here is connected and the story flows and flows, achieving a breathless momentum that reveals its intricate design only in retrospect.” – Los Angeles Times
“Parallel Mothers is a movie of infinite tenderness, that rare ode to motherhood that acknowledges mothers as women first and mothers second.” – TIME Magazine
Starring Penélope Cruz, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, Milena Smit, Israel Elejalde, Julieta Serrano, and Rossy de Palma.
Two women, Janis and Ana, coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and become 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.
