Directed by Pedro Almodóvar| Drama | Spanish with subtitles| 123 mins | Spain| 2021

Janis is an accomplished photographer living in Madrid. On the verge of turning 40, she becomes pregnant following a fling she has with Arturo a handsome and charming forensic archaeologist. She happens to give birth on the same day as another single mum, 17-year-old Ana, her roommate at the hospital. From those earliest, kindhearted conversations, the two women find themselves connecting in myriad, unexpected ways.

The Spanish director’s light-footed tale of female bonding and family secrets zings with his trademark colour palette and Cruz’s radiant warmth - GUARDIAN

Parallel Mothers wears its heart on its beautifully styled sleeve. Even the dark excavation at the heart of the enterprise is delivered with wit, warmth and eye-popping colours. It is difficult to think of another filmmaker who could so effortlessly juggle tones and seemingly disparate elements – IRISH TIMES
