ICYMI: You can now watch Rainbow’s Sunset in Pampanga

From 59 down to 21 theatres, Metro Manila Film Festival 2018 big winner Rainbow’s Sunset is now being screened in more than 80 cinemas nationwide.

And yes! Kapampangans can now watch the film in five cinemas here starting January 1. In case you don’t know, some scenes in Rainbow’s Sunset were shot at the Holy Angel University in Angeles City which starred a few Kapampangan personalities like Vicky Vega, Marco Nepomuceno, Avel Antonio and Cecile Yumul.

The LGBTQ themed film has been Graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board and rated Parental Guidance by MTRCB but was not given ‘fair share of cinemas’ since its screening in December 25.

“Huwag lamang natin patabain ang bulsa ng lahat ng may-ari ng sinehan, patabain natin ang kaluluwa ng ating bayan,” Lamangan said after winning the Best Director award in the MMFF Gabi ng Parangal 2018 held at The Theatre at Solaire.

Rainbow’s Sunset Synopsis:

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 girlfriend – 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 the 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 if filial piety cannot mend all of the siblings’ differences. Not when one of them remains resolute in her prejudice against homosexuality.
