In Pedro Almodovar’s vivid, exuberant, richly emotional film, two single women meet in a hospital room where they prepare to give birth. Janis (Penélope Cruz), an artist in her late 30s, seems ready; Ana (Milena Smit), a teenager, is terrified. As they deepen their connection, the two women consider motherhood, and the arcs of their own lives. (Spain, 2022, 120m)
