Ma ma Trailer (2016)

Trailer for Ma ma, starring Penelope Cruz and Luis Tosar.

Honoring the high melodrama of Pedro Almodóvar 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.

It turns out that the director of Ma ma, Julio Medem, had been sitting on the script for the film for just short of a decade, only getting some movement on the screenplay after Penelope Cruz approached him about working together on a feature.

Ma ma Trailer Screencap 

The trailer for Ma ma does a terrific job making the film look like one helluva drama, so much so that it might hurt the scope of its audience. Yes, the acting looks top notch, and Penelope Cruz has that ability to look beautiful even at the worst of times, but any story revolving around the Big C is not exactly one's idea of escape.

If you do happen to stroll into a domestic theater to check out Ma ma, you may want to bring some tissues.
