Parallel Mothers

Parallel Mothers ★★★★

An exceptional Cruz performance adds massive weight to the melodrama you can predict from the offset. What stands out in the film is simultaneously intersecting personal drama with national trauma of the recent past. I can imagine the powerful ending being even more poignant for Spaniards. Again, in typical Almodovar fashion, there is such tenderness in the story.
