"Edward" was one of the crown favorites in this year's edition of Cinemalaya. Due to the positive reaction from audiences, the film will have a wide release nationwide starting tomorrow, October 2, 2019. The film has been Graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board. "Edward" revolves around a young boy who finds himself stuck in a public hospital to take care of his sick father. Typically a place of hopelessness, the hospital serves as his playground and will ultimately be his rite of passage to liberation. The film's cast is composed of Louise Abuel, Dido dela Paz, Elijah Canlas, Manuel Chua, and Ella Cruz. The coming of age film is directed by Thop Nazareno.
Although it showcases itself as a coming-of-age experience, the film is also a reflection of the country's healthcare system or lack thereof. Be sure to catch the film tomorrow, October 2, 2019. You can also catch the film's official trailer below:
