PREVIEW SCREENINGS 29 & 30 JANUARY @ PETONE & CUBA - BOOK NOW! 

Two women coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn’t regret it and she is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatized. Janis tries to encourage her while they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in those hours will create a very close link between the two, which by chance develops and becomes complicated, changing their lives in a decisive way.

Starring Academy Award Winner Penélope Cruz, Milena Smit, Rossy de Palma, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, Israel Elejalde and Julieta Serrano. Written and Directed by Academy Award winner Pedro ALMODÓVAR (Talk to Her, Pain and Glory, Julieta).

97% Certified Fresh - Rotten Tomatoes

★★★★ "A startling yet profoundly touching examination of female solidarity against political adversity." - Radio Times

★★★★ "Irresistible flirtatious tale", "Penelope Cruz is terrific" - Daily Telegraph

★★★★ "a robust, warm-bodied celebration of female solidarity", "positively ringing with life" - Guardian
