It’s been a life of headaches and heartaches, and at the age of 60, Lorna (Shamaine Buencamino) is still keeping an eye out for Mr Right.
This bantering bombshell laughs loud and loves life, but she’s looking to put the ‘sex’ into ‘sexagenarian’. The man she had a son with is remarrying, so he’s out. Could her online chat mate Johnny be the one for her? Or might it be her very old flame Rocky (Lav Diaz in his most expected, or, most unexpected)?
A feel-good celebration of freedom and flirtatiousness, Lorna is anchored by an amazing performance from Buencamino and keeps the jokes and one-liners coming thick and fast. The sophomore film from young indie writer/director Sigrid Andrea Bernardo (Anita’s Last Cha-Cha), this charming comedy drama won the Audience Favourite award at New Filipino Cinema in San Francisco.
