Pedro Almodóvar talks politics and Penélope Cruz in ‘Parallel Mothers’ – Daily News

The storylines in Pedro Almodóvar’s movies can be wild and unpredictable, but his movies share some common traits: They are beautifully composed with a vibrant and lush color palette; they explore human relations in the most intimate terms; and they often feature the same actors, most notably Penélope Cruz, who has paired with the director eight times, including the Oscar-winning “All About My Mother” and “Volver,” for which Cruz was nominated for an Oscar.

Cruz had a smaller role in 2019’s “Pain and Glory,” which starred Antonio Banderas, another longtime member of Almodóvar’s film family, but she is center stage in his new film “Parallel Mothers” (which also features regulars Rossy de Palma and Julietta Serrano).
