“All About my Mother is about love, parenthood, friendship and identity, about acting roles, and re-creating oneself from scratch.
Almodovar’s most tender and affecting film is a portrait of Manuela, a hard-working single mother whose 17 year old son dies suddenly.
Manuela is beside herself with grief and decides to return to Barcelona to tell the boy’s transgender father Lola about the death of the son she never knew she had.
Screened to complement Opera North’s Don Giovanni and as part of LGBT history month.
Tickets £5 available from the Opera North box office; or book online at https://www.operanorth.co.uk/productions/all-about-my-mother
