Spanish drama Pain and Glory had its premiere in London on August 8, and many of the stars of the film attended looking their best.

At this premiere, some cast and crew members of the film had the opportunity to reunite, including, writer and director Pedro Almodóvar, film star Penelope Cruz and film star Antonio Banderas. Together, the three also got the chance to stand hand in and hand and walking the red carpet.


On the red carpet, Almodóvar wore a tartan suit and pink turtleneck, which is actually the same outfit that he wore to the Cannes Film Festival in May. On his right, Cruz wore a Ralph & Russo couture gown, which was sequined and had ostrich feathers. Cruz’s cast mate, Banderas walked the red carpet in a more casual look, which consisted of a navy suit jacket, a white t-shirt, and blue jeans.

Bedaras’s girlfriend, Nicole Kimpel, also attended this premiere and stood with him on the red carpet.

Many other stars made an appearance at this event, including, Noomi Rapace, Alfie Allen, Nell Hudson and Sai Bennett.

Pain and Glory opened Film4’s Summer Screen, which is an annual film event that screens diverse blockbusters and classics at the Somerset House in London. The red carpet for this event was placed on the steps of the Somerset House.

Pain and Glory first premiered in Spain on March 22 and then at the Cannes Film Festival in France on May 17. The film is focused on Salvador Mallo’s (Banderas) struggles as a film director. It reflects upon Mallo’s childhood, which includes his events with his mother (Cruz) and his significant romantic relationships.

The film is set to premiere in the U.S. on October 4.
