Following the tragic death of her teenage son, Manuela travels from Madrid to Barcelona in an attempt to contact the long-estranged father the boy never knew. She reunites with an old friend, an outspoken transgender sex worker, and befriends a troubled actress and a pregnant, HIV-positive nun.

MUBI's take

A maximalist, meta melodrama about maternal grief that is suffused with emotional intensity, All About My Mother saw Almodóvar swerve away from camp irony and win an Academy Award® in the process. The Spanish maestro crafts this ardent ode to actors and women and above all, his mother.
