From rural cycling clubs to a National Cycling Team, these women are ushering in a new era for a country slowly awakening to global influence and inevitable cultural change.

Pain & Glory
Pedro Almodovar | Spain | 2019 | 113m | 15 Spanish with subtitles

The latest from director Pedro Almodóvar is an award-winning drama about a film director (Antonio Banderas) who reflects on the choices he's made in life as the past and present come crashing down around him.

Salvador (Banderas), a film director in physical decline, experiences a series of re-encounters: his childhood in the 60s when he re-located with his parents to a village in Valencia; first desire; his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s and the pain of the break-up while this love was still alive and intense. Almodóvar’s Felliniesque confessional is his best work in years, moving and articulate, it features a career-best central turn from Banderas.
