The film that made the director an international cinema icon, WOMEN—in typical Almodóvar style—weaves an array of colorful characters into a single, manic-depressive symphony. Carmen Maura highlights as the heroine Pepa, a TV star heartbroken by her lover Ivan (Fernando Guillén), and desperate to find her bearings. “Gorging on the bad, bad world of TV soap operas, tabloid news, and those Roy Lichtenstein cartoons where anguished women lament their lives with ‘Brad’, Almodovar gets a wonderful rise out of life’s lows.”—Washington Post. (90 mins.)
