Journey to a Mother's Room Unclassified 18+
Viaje al Cuarto de una Madre

Language: Spanish with English subtitles

A touching portrait of a mother-daughter relationship and life in an empty nest from one of Catalan cinema’s up-and-coming directors.

Estrella (Lola Dueñas) and her daughter Leonor (Anna Castillo) are a close-knit pair, sharing quiet meals at home and working together. But while Estrella dotes on her daughter, Leonor privately harbours a plan to work as an au pair abroad. When Leonor leaves the family home behind, Estrella must learn to navigate life on her own.

Journey to a Mother’s Room swept up the Youth Jury and New Directors Awards at its debut at the San Sebastián Film Festival, as well as Gaudí Awards for Best Screenplay, Best Female Lead and Best Actress in a Supporting Role. Written and directed by emerging Spanish talent Celia Rico Clavellino, this debut feature is a quiet meditation on family attachments and what can be gained from letting go.

“Dueñas occupies every inch of a new ground discovered with the hesitant charm of an ingenue, creating a character of an older woman who is also a permanent beginner.” – Little White Lies
