PJ and I finally saw Pedro Almodóvar‘s Volver, starring Penélope Cruz. Here’s the trailer:

Volver is about three generations of women. Raimunda, played by Cruz, lives in Madrid with her drunk and lazy husband and their daughter, Paula, played by Yohana Cobo. After their aunt dies, Raimunda’s sister, Sole, played by Lola Dueñas, miraculously encounters their mother, who died in a fire along with their father when the two sisters were children. After a violent act disrupts Raimunda’s marriage, she takes over a nearby diner and slowly begins to learn the truth about what really happened to her parents years before.
