PAIN AND GLORY

PAIN AND GLORY
Thursday 17 October 2019 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm

Antonio Banderas, Asier Etxeandia, Penélope Cruz

Almodóvar joins the list of European auteurs (Fellini, Truffaut) who fictionalise the life of the film director. His hero (Banderas) hasn’t made a film in years, but has enough wealth to live comfortably and fight his physical and mental torments with drugs. A meeting with the star of his early masterpiece starts his creative juices flowing again, as does the memory of his mother (a wonderful cameo by Penelope Cruz) and of an early erotic encounter. “Pain and Glory leaves you with a sweet sadness.” (The Guardian)

Spanish with subtitles.

Iranian, multiple Oscar winning (A Separation, The Salesman) director Farhadi is paired with Spain’s finest in this family drama. Laura travels from Argentina to Spain with her two children to attend a friend’s wedding – but her elder daughter is kidnapped, causing a web of family secrets to be revealed. Once again, Farhadi expertly probes his characters’ complicated emotions and motivations, assisted by a fine cast that extends well beyond its star pairing.
