The critically acclaimed biopic about Philippine President Manuel L. Quezon received rave reviews from moviegoers as ABS-CBN and TFC brought the film to the UAE and in cinemas around the region.
Several overseas Filipinos, who have seen “Quezon’s Game” in the UAE, cannot help but be prouder of their roots. Some of them even watched the film in groups, making the movie more impactful for them, ABS-CBN News posted yesterday.
Aside from regular moviegoers, some prominent personalities were also “very fascinated” with the movie, among them being World Group founder Graham Cooke.
“This is a well-produced film, and the acting was superb,” Cooke said.
CEO of Evolution Media Production and Filipino-Emirati vlogger Fahed Alblooshi as well as member of the Jewish Council of the Emirates Jean Candiotte believe that the younger generation should watch the film.
“Quezon’s Game” tells the story of how former President Quezon and some key personalities in the 1930s have rescued refugees from the ghettos of Germany and Austria.
Produced by Star Cinema in association with iWant and Kinetek, the movie stars Raymund Bagatsing, Rachel Alejandro, David Bianco, Billy Ray Gallion, James Paolelli, and Kate Alejandrino.
It is directed by Matthew Rosen, written by Janice Y. Perez and Dean Rosen.*
