Queens (Spanish: Reinas) is a 2005 film directed by Manuel Gómez Pereira.

The story follows a group of men who will be marrying in Spain's first same-sex wedding ceremony, and their mothers, who will be attending.


Magda (Carmen Maura) is the manager of a posh resort hotel in Madrid which will be the site of a mass same-sex marriage ceremony. One of the grooms is Magda's son Miguel (Unax Ugalde), a designer, who will marry his boyfriend Óscar (Daniel Hendler), son of Ofelia (Betiana Blum), who is "visiting" from Argentina with her dog...

Nuria (Verónica Forqué), a sex addict, is also on her way to attend the ceremony. Her son Narciso (Paco León) will be marrying his boyfriend Hugo (Gustavo Salmerón), whose own parents, Helena (Mercedes Sampietro) and Hector (Tito Valverde), are less enthusiastic.

Meanwhile, actress Reyes (Marisa Paredes) will be attending to watch her son Rafa (Raúl Jiménez) marry his boyfriend Jonas (Hugo Silva), the son of her gardener Jacinto (Lluís Homar).
