Here’s a great ex­am­ple of Span­ish writer-di­rec­tor Pe­dro Almod­ovar (Talk to Her) do­ing what only he does best: mak­ing vi­brant movies dom­i­nated by gutsy, go-for-broke women. Manuela (Ce­cilia Roth), an or­gantrans­plant clerk at a Madrid hospi­tal, is reel­ing from the re­cent death of her son. Com­pelled to do some­thing to fill the void, Manuela de­cides to track down the fa­ther of her late child, who never knew the boy ex­isted, a trans­ves­tite named Lola (Toni Canto).
