PARALLEL MOTHERS arrives on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD starring Penelope Cruz in an Oscar-nominated role. The Pedro Almodovar film also received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Score. Check out the specifications for this home release.
Two women, Janis and Ana, coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and become pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn’t regret it and she is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatized. Janis tries to encourage her while they move like sleepwalkers along 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.
