Cultural Capital: Mujeres de Cine—Journey to a Mother’s Room
Written and directed by Celia Rico Clavellino, Journey to a Mother’s Room (95 min.) is an intimate mother/daughter drama that looks at life inside the empty nest.
Estrella (Lola Dueñas) has raised her daughter Leonor (Anna Castillo) to be a fine young woman, and it has always been just the two of them. Now entering adulthood, Leonor wants to leave home and explore, but she’s afraid to disappoint her mother. When the pressure of being a dutiful daughter becomes too much, Leonor makes an impulsive choice that leaves Estrella no choice but to let her go and adjust to the next part of her life.
After the film, enjoy a Q&A session with director Celia Ricco.
