The stars of international fame, critical esteem, and perfect, justifiable artistic self-confidence all aligned for vanguard queer filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar’s melodrama, made under the influences of John Cassavetes and Tennessee Williams, which follows Manuela (Cecilia Roth) as she travels to Barcelona after the death of her teenaged son to give the tragic news to the boy’s parent, Lola (Toni Cantó). At once funny and shattering, Manuela’s journey is a paean to femininity in every form. An Oscar winner and massive across the board hit that brought Almodóvar mainstream acceptance.
