All About My Mother

Rated R 99 minutes 1999

Madrid actress Manuela (Cecilia Roth), devastated by the accidental death of her son, moves to Barcelona and becomes a sort of nurturing den mother for a crazy cast of characters: a pre-op transsexual hooker (Antonia San Juan); a pregnant HIV-positive nun (Penelope Cruz); a domineering, Margo Channing-like stage actress (Marisa Paredes) and her junkie lesbian girlfriend (Candela Pena); and the father of her dead son, now a transvestite dying of AIDS. Writer-director Pedro Almodóvar escapes with his sentimentality intact (101 min., 1999).
