Ma Ma

While her roles thus far here in Hollywood this year virtually went unseen with Zoolander 2 and The Brothers Grimsby, Penélope Cruz had to go back to her roots for a more substantial role. ma ma, a new film from Julio Medem, follows the actress (also serving as a producer for the first time) as an unemployed teacher afflicted with breast cancer who finds love. Ahead of a a release next month in the U.S., a new trailer has now arrived.

ma ma is right up my street: Large emotional and dramatic intensity, and it turns on the intimacy of the characters — one woman, two men, played by Luis Tosar and Asier Etxeandia, who love her, and a 10-year-old boy,” Medem said about the film. “It’s the first time I portray a character who’s not a woman and lover but a mother. Maternity is key in Ma Ma. The tragedy stems from that.”

Check out the new trailer below.

Academy Award®-winning actress and producer Penélope Cruz delivers an extraordinarily emotional performance in ma ma, the newest film from acclaimed director Julio Medem (SEX AND LUCÍA). Honoring the high melodrama of Pedro Almodóvar and Douglas Sirk, ma ma follows Magda (Cruz) as she experiences tragedies and miracles alike. Just as Magda is diagnosed with breast cancer, she meets Arturo (Luis Tosar), a devoted husband and father in the midst of unspeakable loss. Their chance encounter leads both down a path of strength, grace, love, and rebirth.
