Movie Review: Rainbow's Sunset

Ramon Estrella, an 84-year old retired senator, temporarily leaves his wife of six decades to take care of his gay best friend who is dying of cancer.

He has his wife’s blessings, but Ramon’s three children are scandalized. The old man defies their collective protest and declares that he loves his friend—godfather to all three both in baptism and matrimony—the same way that he loves his wife. The news quickly sends shock waves to the community, raising the hackles of the ex-senator’s second-born, the first of two feisty daughters. As the city’s newly elected mayor, she is the sole heiress to her father’s political legacy. When the youngest child—a formidable feminist and activist—sides with her father and godfather, and the eldest—a weakling and flawed bureaucrat—figures in a scandal of his own, the siblings turn on one another, resulting in a full-blown three- sided war.

Their ever patient and loving matriarch does her beatific best to sue for peace among her brood—with some timely help from the absent patriarch. Blood eventually proves thicker than water, but the force of filial piety cannot mend all of the siblings’ differences. Not when one of them remains resolute in her prejudice against homosexuality.
