Event Details

Released in 1988, writer-director Pedro Almodóvar's Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown) is a hysterical black comedy-drama 1988 Spanish black comedy-drama film that instantly made Almodóvar an international arthouse sensation.  Nominated for both the Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film, the film won the National Board of Review Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and took home five Goya Awards including Best Film and Best Actress in a Leading Role for Maura.

A mutli-character story that ranks among the very best of Almodóvar's signature ensemble farces, the various interweaving stories in Mujeres are set in motion when a woman's lover leaves her, and she tries to contact him to find out why he's left. She confronts his wife and son, who are as clueless as she is. Meanwhile her girlfriend is afraid the police are looking for her because of her boyfriend's criminal activities. They talk to a female lawyer, who turns out to be the lover's new lover, and everyone's path keeps crossing each other's in a very complicated and increasingly confusing - and often hilarious - manner...

Dir. Pedro Almodóvar, Spain, 90 minutes.   Spanish-language, with English subtitles.
