Pain and Glory

Salvador Mallo (an exceptional Antonio Banderas), an aging film director, re-experiences a poignant tapestry of memories, including a childhood spent in a remote village with his mother (Penélope Cruz). With this remarkably intimate film, Pedro Almodóvar (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Volver) is back in form, celebrating the medium of filmmaking and its many possibilities. “Everything about Pain and Glory is awake and alive,” says TIME magazine, “and Almodóvar’s nerve endings become ours, too.”

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)
