Pedro Almodóvar and Penélope Cruz Present “Madres paralelas” in Venice

When Penélope Cruz walked out of the cinema after viewing the film Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down, the then 16-year-old knew immediately that not only did she want to become an actress, but she wanted to work with director Pedro Almodóvar. Thirty years later, the Oscar-winning actress has gotten her wish for the eighth time as she presents their latest collaboration, Madres Paralelas (Parallel Mothers), at the Venice Film Festival.
