Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown

When: Sun., Nov. 8, 2 p.m. 2015

Spain’s Pedro Almodóvar was known for low-budget, impudent, often gay-themed films when this candy-colored comedy marked his international art-house breakthrough — and it wasn’t bad for the careers of Carmen Maura or Antonio Banderas either. Maura’s heroine, reeling from being dumped by her boyfriend, mixes with several characters in crazy cross-purpose plotlines that include Shiite terrorist hijackings and spiked gazpacho before she gets her groove back. The McNay screens the Oscar-nominated gem in conjunction with its Spanish-themed This Is Not a Film Series.

Price: $15-$20
