Sunday Cinema - Pain and Glory

January 19 4:30 to 6:25 pm

A film director reflects on the choices he's made in life as past and present come crashing down around him. His childhood in the 60s; his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s and the pain of its breakup; and the early discovery of cinema. Pain and Glory talks about, about the difficulty of separating it from one's own life and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. Writer-director Pedro Almodóvar draws on his own life to rewarding effect.

"Pain and Glory, all about healing rifts and rejoining life, is personal and universal. It's also simple in a way that's incandescent - suffused by a strange and beautiful gentleness of spirit." Mike LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

"Antonio Banderas gives his best, most committed performance in years as a film director looking back over his life in "Pain and Glory," a typically rich, layered film from director Pedro Almodóvar." Adam Graham, Detroit News
