We've previously posted Jennylyn Mercado as Rosario photos not fully knowing the background of the movie. Turns out Rosario is Studio 5's offering for Metro Manila Film Fest come December 25. While watching on SM cinema last week, we first saw the movie trailer of Rosario. Surfing some more gave us the background of the movie.
What makes it interesting is that it is based on the true story of 'Rosario Herrera', the grandmother TV5 chairman Manny V. Pangilinan.
"Rosario" is a period film set from the 1920s. It tells the story of TV5 chairman Manny V. Panglinan's grandmother, Rosario Herrera. It documents her triumphs and misfortunes-from her charmed beginnings to her mysterious and regrettable end.
Directed by Albert Martinez, the Rosario features a star-studded cast, which includes Jennylyn Mercado, Dennis Trillo, Sid Lucero, Yul Servo, Ricky Davao, Phillip Salvador, Eula Valdez, with the special appearance of comedy king Dolphy.
