The Oscar-nominated Parallel Mothers, written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar, will be released on digital March 22 and on Blu-ray and DVD April 5 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The film has garnered nominations for Best Actress (Penelope Cruz) and Best Original Score (Alberto Iglesias).
In the film, two women, Janis and Ana, coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and become 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 hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between the two, which by chance develops and complicates, and changes their lives in a decisive way.
