In one way or another, we’ve all witnessed the strength that it takes for women to claim their space and make a positive impact in this world. To honor the work and influence that women have in our personal lives and on a larger scale, we’re not going to let National Women’s Month go by without spotlighting the poignant stories and powerful points-of-view of female characters in film. Celebrate this epic month with us by streaming Star Cinema’s newest playlist consisting of 19 FULL MOVIES for FREE!
Prepare to break into endless laughter with the impressive comedy chops shown by female stars in these films: “The Adventures of Pureza” following Melai Cantiveros as the titular character Pureza a.k.a. Queen of the Riles; “Volta”, a superhero movie starring comedy diva Ai-ai delas Alas; “Pinay Pie”, a Jose Javier Reyes film featuring three fearless friends (Ai-ai delas Alas, Assunta de Rossi, and Joyce Jimenez) Ai-ai delas Alas) and their friendship as proof of girl power; and “Beauty in a Bottle”, a satirical comedy movie about three women (Angelica Panganiban, Angeline Quinto, Assunta de Rossi) struggling with their own insecurities.
Relatable tales of motherhood await you in “Everything About Her”, starring Vilma Santos as a real estate mogul and neglectful mother who gets diagnosed with cancer; “Call Center Girl”, where Pokwang plays the role of Jessy Mendiola’s mom and ends up working as a call center agent in her estranged daughter’s workplace; “Four Sisters and a Wedding”, which shows how Coney Reyes’ character deals with the differences of her children; and “Way Back Home”, where Lerma Bartolome (Lotlot de Leon) stands as the caring adoptive mother to the equally goodhearted Ana Bartolome (Kathryn Bernardo).
In the mood for love, passion, and intense hugot? We highly recommend romance flicks “The Unmarried Wife” top-billed by Angelica Panganiban whose character is torn between her cheating husband (Dingdong Dantes) and newfound lover Bryan (Paulo Avelino); “The Love Affair” revolving around Vince’s (Richard Gutierrez) crumbling marriage to Trisha (Dawn Zulueta) and unexpected affair with Adie (Bea Alonzo); “Always Be My Maybe” which follows the situationship of Tintin (Arci Munoz), a jaded young woman, and Jake (Gerald Anderson), a hopeless romantic; and “Once a Princess” starring Erich Gonzales as a rich-kid-turned-struggling-housewife whose relationship with her ex-boyfriend Leonard (Enchong Dee) complicates her present marriage with Damian (JC de Vera).
