Penelope Cruz took to Instagram Thursday to announce her 2015 drama “Ma Ma” is now available on Apple’s iTunes.

“I’m so excited to share that my new film MA MA is now available to buy and rent from @iTunes!” the Oscar-winning actress wrote. “Making this movie has been an incredible experience for me and I hope you enjoy it. Thank you@oscilloscope.” The exclusive video on-demand release comes nearly a year after the film’s release in Spain and two months after the film was released in U.S. theaters.

Here’s the official synopsis: 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.

“Ma Ma” is the latest film from Spanish writer-director Julio Medem (“Sex and Lucia”) who also wrote the screenplay for the movie. Medem is currently attached to direct “Sex and Lucia 2,” according to IMDb Pro.  Cruz recently shot the comedy-drama “The Queen of Spain,” which is expected to be released later this year.

Check out the trailer for “Ma Ma” below.
