Pain and Glory (15) at Ely Cinema

Pedro Almodóvar finds an avatar in Antonio Banderas's terrific performance as a director transported by memories of his childhood.

A fi lm director (Banderas) refl ects on the choices he’s made in life as the past and present come crashing down around him in master fi lmmaker Pedro Almodóvar’s semi-autobiographical fi lm. A deeply personal and very moving film, anchored by the best work of Antonio Banderas’ career. Spanish with English subtitles. Drug use, some graphic nudity and language.

Director: Pedro Almodóvar.

Starring: Antonio Banderas, Penélope Cruz, Asier Etxeandia
