(PAIN AND GLORY) DOLOR Y GLORIA
NAME OF FILM: (PAIN AND GLORY) DOLOR Y GLORIA
DIRECTOR(S): Pedro Almodóvar
STARRING: Penélope Cruz, Antonio Banderas, Leonardo Sbaraglia
GENRE: Foreign Film
SYNOPSIS: Salvador Mallo, a director not too subtly modeled on Almodóvar himself, whose growing health problems—including tinnitus, migraines, and spinal pain—and creative block have initiated a midlife reckoning. Moving in and out of time, evoking Salvador’s childhood in the sixties (featuring Penélope Cruz as his doting mother); his years of triumph in the eighties; and present-day Madrid, where he navigates new artistic challenges, Pain and Gloryis both a moving summative statement on a career and an indication of more brilliant things to come.
