I’M SO EXCITED
Pedro Almodóvar’s first pure comedy since Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988) reunites him with Penélope Cruz, Cecilia Roth and Antonio Banderas. But the movie is stolen by three azafatos (male flight attendants) who promise to make your trip “as pleasurable as possible.”

Also recommended:
