Two unmarried strangers who have both become pregnant by accident meet by chance while in hospital. They form a strong bond with each other as they face their pasts and confront impending motherhood. A warm-hearted melodrama and celebration of female solidarity from award-winning Spanish auteur Pedro Almodovar (All About My Mother, Pain & Glory). Nominated for two Academy Awards (including Best Actress) and Best Film Not in the English Language at this year’s BAFTAs.
‘As ever with Almodóvar’s films, to enter his world is a pleasure – even when we’re faced with pain and tough lessons.’
Dave Calhoun, Time Out
‘From opening frame to closing titles, this is resoundingly, exquisitely, the Penélope Cruz show. But with a lesson in Spanish history.’
Kevin Maher, The Times

Plan your visit
Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
