All About My Mother

Exhibition and Shows

9 May 2021 Once Only Event

Join the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia for a special screening with a complimentary glass of Sangria and chocolates.

This Oscar-winning melodrama, one of Pedro Almodóvar’s most beloved films, provides a dizzying, moving exploration of the meaning of motherhood.

In an instant, nurse Manuela (Cecilia Roth) loses the teenage son she raised on her own. Grief-stricken, she sets out to search for the boy’s long-lost father in Barcelona. There she reawakens into a new maternal role as head of a surrogate family that includes a pregnant, HIV-positive nun (Penélope Cruz); an illustrious star of the stage (Marisa Paredes); and a transgender sex worker (Antonia San Juan).

Beautifully performed and bursting with cinematic references, All About My Mother (Todo sobre mi madre) is a vibrant tribute to female fortitude, a one-of-a-kind family portrait and a work of boundless compassion.

‘An emotionally satisfying and brilliantly played take on the ups and (mostly) downs of a group of less-than-typical female friends’ – Variety
