      Pain and Glory

      Opening at The Ross, on Friday, November 15, PAIN AND GLORY finds writer-director Pedro Almodóvar drawing on his own life to rewarding effect and honoring his craft as only a master filmmaker can. A surprise in all ways except its surpassing quality, “PAIN AND GLORY” reveals master Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar forging dazzling new paths while being completely himself. –Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times “PAIN AND GLORY” can be achingly sad, but its pleasures, rainbow hues and humor keep it (and you) aloft. –Manohla Dargis, The New York Times Antonio Banderas gives the performance of his career playing Pedro Almodovar, the director who discovered him. ‘PAIN AND GLORY,’ suffused with memory and regret, is one of Almodovar's greatest films and a moving tribute to both their talents. –Peter Travers, Rolling Stone PAIN AND GLORY is showing at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center on Friday, November 15 through Thursday, November 28. Show times are available at www.TheRoss.org, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated PAIN AND GLORY R (for drug use, some graphic nudity, and language). This program is being presented with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. PAIN AND GLORY tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity, the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense, writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable, the early discovery of cinema, and the void, the infinite void that creates the incapacity to keep on making films. PAIN AND GLORY talks about creation, about the difficulty of separating it from one's own life and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.
