Sony Pictures Classics released the first teaser trailer for Pedro Almodóvar’s Parallel Mothers (Madres Paralelas) set to open in theaters on December 24, 2021.
The film announced as an official selection of Venice Film Festival stars Penélope Cruz, Milena Smit, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, and Israel Elejalde, with Julieta Serrano and Rossy de Palma.
In the film, Penélope Cruz and Milena Smit star as two women, Janis and Ana, who coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn’t regret it and she is exultant. However, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatized. Janis tries to encourage her while they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between the two, which by chance develops and complicates, and changes their lives in a decisive way.
