Parallel Mothers: discover the reactions to the Cineworld Unlimited screening

Last night, we were delighted to screen Pedro Almodóvar's sumptuous and emotional new drama Parallel Mothers. Spain's pre-eminent filmmaker, responsible for the acclaimed likes of Talk to Her and Volver, returns with a story of contrasting motherhood, with the magnetic Penelope Cruz turning in an award-winning performance.



Following its rapturous response at the 2021 Venice Film Festival, Parallel Mothers went on to be lauded by the international critical fraternity. Rotten Tomatoes graces it with a 97% aggregate rating, saying: "A brilliant forum for Penélope Cruz's talent, Parallel Mothers reaffirms the familiar pleasures of Almodóvar's filmmaking while proving he's still capable of growth."

However, we're here to talk about the reactions from our very own Unlimited screening. We've rounded up a few responses, which laud Almodóvar's typically bold vision and Cruz's intuitive performance.
