We’re super excited to be hosting a late night screening of this Almodóvar masterpiece as part of our Life, Death (and the Rest) festival (5th – 8th March)
Coming in at number 5 of the most essential LGBT+ films according to Time Out; after the death of her beloved teenage son in an accident, Roth leaves Madrid for Barcelona to cope with her grief, hook up with old friends, and – just maybe – contact the long-estranged father the boy never knew. As she gradually regains the will to live through her involvement with the lives of others (including her son’s favourite stage diva Paredes), Almodóvar piles on the coincidences, contrivances and twists until the film evolves into this beautifully crafted, semi-ironic melodrama.
“Pedro Almodovar has been fascinated by the Spanish obsession with love and death, with his countrymen’s taste for histrionics and emotional extremes, and the traditional rigidity of sexual identity” Philip French for the Guardian, 1999
