Parallel Mothers (2021)

Winner of over 20 international awards, Pedro Almodóvar’s Parallel Mothers follows two mothers who bond in unexpected ways after giving birth on the same day.

As Janis, Penélope Cruz won Best Actress at Venice and was nominated for an Oscar, among other accolades. Alberto Iglesias was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe for the score, while Parallel Mothers was nominated as Best Non-English Film at both the BAFTAs and Golden Globes and won the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Limited Release Film.

Parallel Mothers has a 96% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with The Observer saying Cruz “has never been better” and The Hollywood Reporter calling it “ravishingly crafted… No one uses the expressive power of colour and design quite like Almodóvar.”
