Marian Rivera is obviously the hottest star of the moment and proof of this were the loudest cheers she received at the Red Carpet premiere of “Desperadas” held Sunday night at SM Megamall cinema which drew an SRO crowd.
Yes, the other cast members of “Desperadas” namely Ruffa Gutierrez, Rufa Mae Quinto and Iza Calzado had their own share of shrieks but the loudest of them all were reserved for Marian, who should be a contender for a best actress award.
The star of “Marimar” is so effective in her role that this early we seem inclined to give her a best actress nomination for Best Performance by An Actress in a Musical or Comedy in the 5th Golden Screen Awards to be held next year.
Marian plays the youngest sibling Courtney. Ditzy and accident-prone, she’s a swimwear and underwear designer who is engaged to be married to basketball star Patrick (Will Devaughn).
“Desperadas” is the story of four beautiful half-sisters with different idiosyncracies and issues on family and relationships. It portrays the many trials of many a Filipino woman and how she copes with life’s unending ups and downs but in the end realizes that all she really needs is love.
The film directed by Joel Lamangan showcases some of the country’s most captivating and stylish actresses in unforgettable roles set to make the audience laugh, cry and be entertained this holiday season.
