While the entertainment industry finally starts to become more inclusive in casting, there is still a long way to go. A lot of more independent films are now taking the charge to bring the lesser-seen stories to the screen, to highlight different cultures and families in both movies and shows. And 1091 media is bringing The Fabulous Filipino Brothers to the screen, a story told in four parts about four Filipino brothers who were raised in the United States and their different ways to approach life.
The movie focuses on one pivotal point in time, one of the four brothers is getting married. And you have the stereotypical overachieving brother, the one who wants to please everyone, the screw-up and of course, the baby who everyone walks on eggshells around. These brothers’ stories are all interconnected and lead to moments of laughter and almost over-the-top moments that seem too bizarre to be real. What happens, of course, is the four stories bring together warming moments in their lives and instances that redirect who they are.
The main name most people will recognize in the film is Dante Basco, or Rufio from the 1991 film Hook. And while his story seems to dominate most of the others, he is only one of the four brothers. As different as all of the characters are, they’re easy to relate to and will have you laughing at some of the situations they find themselves in.
THE FABULOUS FILIPINO BROTHERS from 1091 MEDIA hits VOD on all digital platforms starting February 8 and a pre-vod robust theatrical road tour leading to launch date at the REGAL CINEMAS. It’s a fun movie that will be a change of pace from what you’re used to.
