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.
One of Almodóvar’s most acclaimed and beloved films, All About My Mother won the Best Director award in Cannes and an Oscar! An immaculate maximalist melodrama full of intense emotion, this love letter to actresses is brought to life by a fierce cast of Almodóvar regulars, including Penélope Cruz.
