Internationally acclaimed writer/director Pedro Almodóvar (2003 Oscar® winner, Best Screenplay, Talk to Her; Bad Education, The Flower of my Secret) delivers his finest film yet, a poignant masterpiece of unconditional love, survival and redemption. Manuela (Cecilia Roth) is the perfect mother. A hard-working nurse, she's built a comfortable life for herself and her teenage son, an aspiring writer. But when tragedy strikes and her beloved only child is killed in a car accident, her world crumbles. The heartbroken woman learns her son's final wish was to know his father - the man she abandoned when she was pregnant 18 years earlier.

Thought-provoking Almodovar drama; lots of sex, profanity.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that All About My Mother is a Spanish-language film (with English subtitles) from 1999 by Pedro Almodóvar. There's a lot of frank talk about sexuality and sex acts using crude language, but the only depiction is a brief, vague simulation of oral sex. Language used includes "c--k," "d--k," "f--k," and "t--ts," and more, mostly in an "among friends" context, not verbal hostility. A major plot point includes a pregnant nun. One scene briefly shows a sexual assault with one breast clearly shown, and blood streams from the victim's nose. Women's breasts are briefly glimpsed at a prostitute pickup circle. Important characters die. A minor character is a drug addict; there's some discussion about her addiction, with characters looking for her when she's out seeking drugs, and in one scene she smokes something behind a closed door. Teens may be attracted by the strong sexual themes (including a major transgender character), but the themes are subtly and slowly explored. Best for mature, patient viewers.
