Synopsis

From acclaimed Spanish director Pedro Almodovar comes the story of Manuela (Cecilia Roth in a multi-award winning performance), a single mother, who after the tragic death of her beloved teenage son, leaves Madrid for her old haunts in Barcelona in search of the father, who is now a transvestite named Lola and does not know he has a child. Manuela reunites with her old friend, the transvestite prostitute Agrado, finds work with as the personal assistant to famous actress Humo Rojo and befriends Rosa, a pregnant nun (Penelope Cruz, star of Almodovar's Volver and Broken Embraces), who charges her with raising her baby, bringing Manuela full circle. All About My Mother is dedicated to all actresses who have played actresses, to all men who act and become women, and to all the people who want to be mothers and features superb, compassionate performances woven together in an extraordinary tapestry from one of cinema's greatest living directors.
Considered by critics world wide to be the finest movie Almodovar has directed, the film combines warmth, love, tears and humour as it builds to an unforgettable emotional crescendo.
