The guys return to the world of Pedro Almodovar for a different type of story. While last week was a fun farce, All About My Mother looks at a group of women all facing a personal tragedy. They have to come to grips with the death of a child and loved ones facing terminal illnesses. While it’s more somber material, this film highlights Almodovar’s warmest elements as he praises the roles of female friendships and the power of melodrama.
