In my monthly synopsis for February 2018, I mentioned that I’d make March a month for Marvel films, but like all revolutionary plans, the universe decided to take a giant dump on my hopes and dreams. Although I immediately recognized that March was going to be a busy month for me, I was still embarrassingly unprepared for the onslaught of deadlines. In other words, I was unable to succeed in my Marvel movie marathon. But I did get the chance to watch a Filipino film!
In celebration of Women’s March, UP Diliman’s Cine Adarna held a month-long screening of various feminist films and films centered on women. I was able to watch Lorna, a 2014 Cinema One Originals film. It’s a midlife comedy-drama about a 60-year-old woman rebounds from one love interest to another. Needless to say, I totally loved it! If the official movie trailer isn’t enough to pique your interest, I don’t know what will.
