When two mothers, Janis and Ana, give birth on the same day, a close link develops between the two of them.

Janis, middle-aged, doesn’t regret it and is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatised. Janis tries to encourage her while they move through the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in those hours becomes the foundation of a complex relationship that will change their lives.

A favourite subject of director Pedro Almodovar (Pain and Glory, Volver), the imperfect mothers of Parallel Mothers form a diverse and authentic family in our modern times.

This film is showing as part of the Chiltern Film Society season. Showings are open to non-members. Seating is unreserved – simply purchase a ticket and choose your seat when you arrive.
