Movie Review: Whistleblower

In a world of dirty money and two-faced politicians, Zeny Roblado (Nora Aunor), a quiet, unassuming accountant, becomes embroiled in a dangerous struggle between the scheming Lorna Valera (Cherry Pie Pecache) and the powers Lorna serves.

Desperate, Zeny turns to reporter Teresa Saicon (Angelica Panganiban) to expose the truth. But what truth will Zeny reveal? And at what price?

As the lies begin to unravel, only one question remains. Can you be trusted?

Whistleblower opens the CineFilipino Film Festival 2016. A decently done socio politicial film anchored by powerful performance by Cherry Pie Picache and subtle acting by Nora Aunor. The film's sociopolitical themes are  more powerful for being unsubtly expressed through non-linear story telling and starkly realistic tale. A local film with timely subject matter and story that needs to be told.

My Verdict: 3.5/5
