Event description: 

Join us for Pedro Almodóvar’s VOLVER, starring Penélope Cruz in an Oscar-nominated performance, Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas, and Yohana Cobo. The 2006 drama about three generations of women is “a feast of colours, swooning camera movements, lushly orchestrated musical cues and meticulously fetishized symbolism,” writes Geoff Pevere. “Ripe with female characters and embroidered with flourishes that hint at Hollywood’s Golden Age,” Lisa Kennedy says, “VOLVER is one of Almodóvar’s finest films. It is also one of his most emotionally delightful.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

A presentation of the Yale Film Study Center and Films at the Whitney with support from Paul L. Joskow, ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
