It’s week two in our Pedro Almodóvar series, and All About My Mother (1999) is one of the director’s best — filled with humor, tragedy, bold primary colors and improbable coincidences.
Esoteric and desultory, All About My Mother floats and lands on a grieving mother, Manuela (Cecilia Roth). She seeks the father of her dead son but finds an old friend instead. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. With Marisa Paredes, Antonia San Juan and Penelope Cruz.
ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER screens Friday and Saturday, March 13 and 14 at 7:00 and 9:00, and Sunday, March 15 at 5:00 and 7:00. Advance tickets are 8:00, and you can purchase them here.
