Going against the popular trend where local television programs and movies are mostly targeted towards the younger market, a new Cinemalaya film revives a famous 80’s TV couple and puts them in the spotlight in 1st Ko si 3rd.
Nova Villa plays Cory, a sixty-something retiree who takes a leap of faith to reignite an old flame. Her Chicks to Chicks love-team, Freddie Webb, plays Third. For the first time in years the duo brings back to life their chemistry in cinemas. This time however the comic antics are tamed to a level of serious but light depiction of sensible situations.
1st Ko si 3rd is written and directed by Real Florido and will be showing at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and Ayala Cinemas on August 1 to 10, 2014.
