Our February Screen 2 film will be Parallel Mothers...

Janis and Ana give birth in hospital on the same day. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn't regret it and she is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatized. A close bond develops which complicates and changes their lives in a decisive way.

'Most of all, it's Cruz who sets the tone, with a performance that radiates warmth and is refreshingly forgiving of her character's flaws. She has never been better.' Wendy Ide, Observer

'If you're already a fan of Almodovar's work this is essential viewing; if you haven't been introduced to his very special world before, Parallel Mothers will be a great place to start.' David Stratton, The Australian

Tickets cost £5 for adults and £2.50 for under 18s and are available online now.
