Awarded an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film, All About My Mother is Pedro Almodóvar’s ode to actresses. As they come out of a performance of A Streetcar Named Desire, Manuela mentions to her son Esteban that she played herself Blanche alongside his father. It is the first time Esteban hears of his father. Shaken, he is hit by a car and dies while chasing after the play’s main actress for her autograph. Devoured by grief, Manuela searches for the man she once loved.
