Star Cinema hope to start strong in 2015 with Edsa Woolworth-a powerful film produced by The Filipino Channel (TFC) in line with its 20th anniversary.
Pokwang plays the lead role of Edsa Woolworth and the film reunites with director John D. Lazatin who directed her in 2011 in the Filipino independent film “A Mother’s Story” were Pokwang delivers notably inspiring performance.
Edsa Woolworth is written by seasoned US based writer Noel Nuguit, Edsa Woolworth is an endearing and unforgettable movie for the whole family to enjoy. The movie is centered on an unconventional family that is strongly bound by ties that go beyond the boundaries of language, race, culture, and even blood. What keeps the Woolworths together, despite their many differences with each other, are the common stubborn affection and utmost respect that they have for one another. The Woolworths is an inspiring family composed of people with quirks and different personalities who manage to stick together through thick and thin.
As a regular immigrant, the Woolworth go through a roller coaster of emotions as they collectively and individually encounter life-changing experiences that greatly define their decisions and choices. With colliding personalities that lead them to fight and bicker incessantly, the tenderness and love they feel for one another always prevail as it sneaks even in the most mundane moments of their lives.
As Edsa Woolworth, Pokwang delivers a standout performance that no one should ever miss. Edsa is the eldest and only daughter in a family headed by an American father and she is faced with the dilemma on how to reconcile the desires of her heart and the unconditional love she feels for her family.
Edsa Woolworth, which initially had run in the US and Canada last November 2014 with rave reviews, is a must-see film that offers the right blend of drama and comedy. The film highlights universal values that every Filipino can certainly relate with among them are love and compassion among family members.
