Pedro Almodóvar is Teaming Up Again With Penélope Cruz for His Motherhood-Themed Drama ‘Madres Paralelas’

There was a big hoopla earlier this year when Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar announced that he would be following up his Oscar-nominated masterwork Pain & Glory with his first-ever English language feature. But before the auteur crosses the Atlantic to make his foray into the English language, Almodóvar will be returning to his roots once again to do what he does best: make a Madrid-set movie about mothers with his longtime collaborator Penélope Cruz. With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic apparently pushing back plans for Almodóvar to develop his first English-language feature, the filmmaker has set his next feature to be a drama called Madres Paralelas starring Cruz.
