Somerset House Film4 Summer Screen: Pain and Glory

The undisputed master of Spanish cinema Pedro Almodóvar joins to introduce the UK premiere of his latest film to open the 2019 Film4 Summer Screen.

Certificate 15
Spanish with English subtitles

Duration 113 mins
Film starts approximately 21.00

Long-time Almodóvar leading man Antonio Banderas stars in Pain and Glory as Salvador Mallo, a director whose physical ailments have led into an almost hermit-like existence, before he is reunited with an actor from his past and embarks on a wild new chapter.

Pedro Almodóvar’s hotly anticipated, semi-autobiographic film takes you inside Salvador’s mind as he reflects on his personal and professional past. Via a series of flashbacks and present-day encounters, we revisit some of his most important relationships, with his mother (played by an on-form, disgruntled Penélope Cruz), his former leading man and his early loves.

Featuring all the mayhem we love about Almodóvar together with a romantic sentimentality and an infectious love for cinema, this latest film from the director of All About My Mother and Volver is in competition at Cannes, and revered as his finest work in years – see it there first.

8 August @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
