"A gripping melodrama inspired by the trash TV that is a soundtrack to its characters’ lives." -The Guardian ★★★★★
DONT MISS PEDRO ALMODOVAR'S NEW STYLISH AND SENSUAL FILM - STRANGE WAY OF LIFE- SCREENING AT RIVERSIDE STUDIOS 25 SEPTEMBER.
Family secrets echo around a Spanish clan, ringing loud enough to rouse the dead, in Pedro Almodóvar's assured melodrama.
Raimunda (Penélope Cruz) works and lives Madrid with her husband Paco and daughter Paula. Her sister Sole (Lola Dueñas) lives nearby and they both miss their mother Irene (Carmen Maura), who died several years ago in a house fire along with their father.
A former neighbor from their hometown reports that she has seen the ghost of Irene and both daughters do not believe her. After a murder and a family tragedy, Irene's spirit materializes around her daughters to help comfort them.
