Movie Review: School Service

Maya was walking home in her province when the service stops beside her and offers her to hitch. She innocently takes the ride to reach home faster. To Maya’s horror, the service did not stop at her place. She soon realizes she has been taken, along with the other kids who are inside the crammed school service. Soon, Maya finds herself hours and hours away from home, in an unfamiliar land -Manila. By dusk, the children are dropped off along the national highway to work by begging for alms. Forced to struggle with the harsh conditions of street life, Maya continues to hope for her dreams and chase for her freedom that may never happen.

School Service is a glimpse in a life of street children that tends to be truthful as much as possible. The film has awesome ensemble cast especially the kids Therese Malvar, Felixia Dizon, Kenken Nuyad, Celine Juan and  Santino Oquendo  together with the heartful performance by Ms Aiai Delas Alas. Its truly an eye opener showing the heart of the homeless people living in street. I appreciate the different kind of treatment in telling of the usual story that we have already know. So if you want to watch a different kind of film with natural actors on the screen, watch School Service

My Verdict: 3.5/5
