ma ma star  Penelope Cruz

It seems Penelope Cruz has to return to her native Spain to get quality roles. In her new drama MA MA from acclaimed director Julio Medem (SEX AND LUCIA), Cruz gets to flex her acting muscles in a dramatic piece portraying a single mother suffering from breast cancer. Watch the emotional performance in a new trailer.

After appearing in mediocre fair like ZOOLANDER 2 and THE BROTHERS GRIMSBY, we finally get to see Penelope Cruz in a role more suitable for her talents. Honoring the high melodrama of Pedro Almadovar and Douglas Sirk, Ma Ma follows Magda (Cruz) as she experiences tragedies and miracles alike. Just as Magda is diagnosed with breast cancer, she meets Arturo ( Luis Tosar ), a devoted husband and father in the midst of unspeakable loss. Their chance encounter leads both down a path of strength, grace, love, and rebirth. 

MA MA is in limited release in NY, LA and Miami on May 20th with a wider release to follow.
