Movie Review: MRS.

70-year-old Virginia (Elizabeth Oropesa) shares the old ancestral house with Delia (Lotlot de Leon), her ever-loyal maid. Delia is marrying her long-time boyfriend, Rene, and tearfully confides to Virginia that she wants to go home to her parents in the province to start a new family life with him. Haunted by a past that Virginia tries to conquer— her only son Sonny Boy who disappeared years ago, what follows shows a portrait of a woman and a mother trying to juggle the sad realities of life in a cycle of life and death.

With Oropesa's remarkable acting as a simple, trusting woman of faith and Lotlot's strong suporting performance MRS. told with heart and passion that even if it presents mystery in story it ended with a subtle climax that is hauntingly terrfic. The film offers a profoundly affecting drama for adult filmgoers of all ages. It earns its heartwarming and honesty, with each characters mouthing the dialogue with utter believability. It's a film with depth and decent silence, tackling big issues while managing to be an immensely found story at the same time. 

My Verdict:  4/5 


The Cast MRS.: Arvic Tan, Daria Ramirez, Lotlot De Leon and Elizabeth Oropesa with Director Adolf Alix
