This coming January 8, 2012 Pokwang will show us that she is not only a good comedian but she is also a good dramatic actress in Star Cinema’s “A Mother’s Story” in the movie she plays as a make-up artist who believes that he own American Dream will be finally realized when she accompanies a concert star to the USA for a performance, only to discover too late that American is not really the friendliest land on the earth contrary to what many Filipinos believe.
Pokwang played as Medy is convinced by Helen played by Beth Tamayo to try her luck in the US and Medy agrees then she going TNT (Tago nang Tago) and later Medy is forced to come home when her husband tells her that he needs a big amount to send their sick daughter to the hospital. Medy comes back empty-handed, finding her home in disarray with her children King (played by Rayver Cruz) and Queenie (played by Xyriel Manabat) having issued against her and worse, her husband guilty of something that Medy never expected.
Pokwang said that she can feel her role I quote “feel na feel ko ang character kong si Medy” we all know she also worked abroad and while she was there she learned that he child had died.
At first Pokwang said in the interviews “I thought I couldn’t forgive myself. My child died without me seeing her. I went aboard to give her a better future at ganoon pa ang nangyari”
While watching the trailer I feel that the transition of Pokwang from being a good comedian to good dramatic actress was superb.
“A Mother’s Story” is a movie about mothers, children, husbands, wives. Its story is universal. One that will surely touch the heart. One that we can all totally relate to. After all, we all have mothers. We are all children.
The cast of the movie are Pokwang, Rayver Cruz, Xyriel Manabat, Nonie Buencamino, Beth Tamayo, Ana Capri and Daria Ramirez.
A Mother’s Story is directed by John D. Lazatin, story and screenplay by Zenedy Que, produced by TFC (The Filipino Channel) of ABS-CBN and distributed by Star Cinema.
I will be surely watching the movie at the first day of showing.
