Penelope Cruz: Actress Penelope Cruz speaks out on domestic violence: Here’s what she thinks
Penelope Cruz added that many women around the world are trapped in their homes and pretend everything is fine in front of their children to survive. She said she had done seven films with Pedro and played a mother in five, which is no coincidence. She said she is interested in what is going on in each family and has strong maternal instincts.
Difficulties in family life
The Immensita tackles many critical issues, and domestic violence is one of them. It is based on Crialese’s memory of her transition from female to male, a closed-minded abusive father, and a difficult family life. Adriana is the eldest daughter (12 years old) in the film and wants to be a boy. Adriana rejects her gender and her name, which upsets the balance of her family. Crialese said her transition from female to male is very different from the journey of children today. The main thing is to transform and manage this pain.
